SCHILBACH Violin Making

Violin maker workshop and onlineshop

SCHILBACH stands for an honest and discreet way of dealing with customers and faces the highest challenges in order to solve them with perfection. We are not just interested in handling the violin making and restoration to the highest level. Furthermore our opinion is that a scientific examination is essential to offer holistic highest quality.

The SCHILBACH brand introduces itself

The SCHILBACH brand is based on profound development work over several years. At the beginning of 2006, the two brothers Benjamin Schilbach, at that time studying at the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences and Alexis Schilbach working as a violin maker and restorer in Berlin, developed the basic features of the SCHILBACH brand. In 2008, with the opening of the atelier for restoration and violin making in Morges / Switzerland, SCHILBACH and thus a specific face of the brand, went public for the first time.

A second aspect of the brand was realized in 2015. With the foundation of the studio for design and product management SCHILBACH DesignThinkingProcess in Harpfing in Bavaria, Germany, also under the motto “Sign of Excellence” and thus with the same demands on perfection and high quality. Here, products for violin making are developed and implemented in close cooperation with the studio and its specific specialist knowledge, with a sound scientific background.

One year later, the SCHILBACH online shop opened, where you can purchase products for violin makers. The dispatch and the support of the violin makers take place from Germany.

In 2017, SCHILBACH presented itself for the first time at the Mondomusica trade fair in Cremona. Today the brand is one of the reference projects in the strategic brand development of SCHILBACH DesignThinkingProcess.

Mondomusica violin making fair in Cremona

Since the SCHILBACH online store for violin makers was founded, we have been a regular stop for numerous violin, viola and cello makers, as well as bow makers and musicians at the Mondomusica, the trade fair for violin making in Cremona. Here we have the opportunity to personally exchange ideas with you, our customers.

In order to make the fair and the visit to our stand an entertaining and exciting pleasure, we try to lighten up our stand by entering into cooperations with other companies for Mondomusica in Cremona.

So in the end there is something for everyone.

Atelier Petit & Schilbach Sàrl: Quality work for the highest demands

With the white of the glaciers and the sandy brown of the steppe, the SCHILBACH studio, inspired by Central Asia, opens up a whole new view of a violin making and restoration workshop. Central Asia, where the bow playing was first depicted in writing and in images, runs through the concept of this studio in the background.

Each challenge goes through a threefold problem-solving process that breaks down into an analysis, design development, and execution phase.

In the Restoration, special techniques that preserve the original material ensure the highest standards for the modern musician.

The core competence in retouching and coating is individually matched to the respective instrument in the analysis, the pigment processing, the composition, as well as the structure of the paint and the polishing technique.
