Wolfgang Schiele established his workshop in Munich, Germany, in 1990. His service offerings include the making of new instruments, the repair and sound improvement as well as the restoration of old instruments.
Individual advice for repair and sound improvement is the important basis in the work with his customers.
In addition, he offers a rental system for high quality violins, violas and cellos in all sizes.
Wolfgang Schiele builds his instruments in the very tradition of 17th century Italian violin making, the blossom of Cremonese violin making with Amati, Stradivari and Guarneri as the most outstanding representatives.
His violins, violas and cellos are highly estimated by both professional musicians and ambitious amateur players at home and abroad. Each of his instruments is individually made. Their sound is well-balanced and they present a colorful timbre as well as a very high resonance.
