An antique instrument should not just sound magnificent; it should also be a good investment. My experience and expertise are the bases for a reliable and honest consultation. Along with antique cellos, I also trade in violins and violas and meet the highest standards by consulting music colleagues who are experts in the field.
What you should expect from me:
Intensive consultation! I will sensitively and competently accompany you as you search for your dream instrument. The search is often tedious and stressful, but together we will find the right instrument for you.
Provenance research! The exchange of information with leading experts in researching the historical background of original antique instruments is an integral part of my expertise.
Certificates and appraisals! All my instruments are sold with recognized certificates and certified appraisals.
Restoration! Every instrument for sale has been brought into perfect playing condition by the Munich violin maker Stephan Teichmann and the restorer Alex Schilbach from Lausanne, Switzerland.
Tonal fine-tuning! As a musician I know how much the sound quality of an instrument depends on its tonal adjustment. I devote the greatest attention to this work.
