Welcome to the Dimitar Georgiev Studio. We craft handmade beautiful bowed instruments, in the heart of the Rose Valley located in Bulgaria. Our instruments come with nearly 100 years of luthier heritage, great craftsmanship, talent and knowledge.

The story goes that Stradivari and Amati obtained their prized woods from Bulgaria’s majestic Rhodopi mountains, at the foot of the Balkan range, near the Rose Valley and ancient Tracian tombs. At Dimitar Georgiev Studio, we continue to  craft instruments from those same whispering forests.

We reproduce models of Stradivari and other famous masters or make precise copies of old instruments keeping the genuine individuality of each instrument. The fine attention to detail, perfect varnish and precise selection of well-seasoned wood is  the pride and winning formula of our studio.

Our violins are beautifully crafted with brilliant, powerful and responsive tone. They have fine spruce top and nice flamed maple back, sides, and neck, all carefully selected woods from the Balkan region. We include elegant trimmings from ebony and boxwood, as well as inlaid purflings. We use Thomastik strings, French bridge, and apply artistic spirit varnish. Our instruments are an excellent choice for the professional player.
