Laubach Igor manages the company since 2003 and is working in the stringed instruments construction since 1996. As a engineer, he was interested in the physics of the violin and attended various international practices in prestigious workshops in France, Italy and USA. He builds after old tradition in manual labor and after the historical, physical-, design-technical principles of each era. With its superb craftsmanship and training on the breeds of wood processing as aircraft modeler, created beautiful violins and bows. He focuses on internationalization and a comprehensive product portfolio of high-quality violins, cellos on sheets up to double basses and rosin.
Even though the craftsmanship of violin- and bow making has a long and proud history, makers themselves have become extremely rare. This is exactly the reason why Igor Laubach doesn't only want reviving the traditional trade of violin- and bow making, but also about creating violins and bows with a value that goes beyond utility - violins and bows with soul. After all, each violin is different. This central tenet of Laubach’s philosophy finds its concrete expression in his work. His aim is to create hand-made violins and bows that are not only perfectly sound and convenience to provide, but those also match the personality of their owner.
Future owners therefore frequently acquire a real sense of ownership of the instruments, and this complements the material value of Laubach’s exquisite instruments and bows by a unique emotional factor.
