What makes a violin a Master violin?

String instrument, a violin...
is build out of 50 elements – each of them more or less affects the sound. The question is what determines the 'sound' and when can we say that it is optimal? To every musician it is to a certain extent a relative, subjective matter, but there is also such a thing as canon - a pattern within which we operate. Sound components are timbre, strength, balance, speed, selectivity - they determine the potential of the instrument. The higher the potential, the greater the chance and the ease of their use, which is essential to perform at the highest level.

At every stage of building an instrument, starting with the choice of material and ending with the set up of the soundpost in the right position, the violin maker can either spoil something or craft it perfectly. Bobak Violino guarantees the aforementioned perfection in its master instruments. This guarantee is supported by the widely understood vision, experience and passion, which is essential in this profession.
