The wood is carefully selected and obtained from Transylvania forests, at a great height.

My aim is to provide instruments of the highest quality, which last and are molded to the exact needs of the artists.

Much care goes in the creation of an exquisite instrument, and great care is taken when it comes to the wood used

About Me

Experience in violin making can be acquired only through hard work, dedication, passion, and love for string instruments, but most importantly, of course, by learning the specific techniques. Every single violin maker has implemented, sharpened and created his own methods of building up an instrument, but the authentic techniques give the exceptional significance to a masterpiece.

My name is Szász Friderich, I live in Romania in the city of Reghin, Mures county, in the heart of Transylvania. I am a violin, viola and cello maker, working with specific skills, which I have gained through more than 30 years of experience in this field. My first contact with the crafting of these superb instruments has been through my work in a violin factory in 1977. Breaking away from the factory environment, in 1990, I began working in a workshop led my Ciurba Nicolae, a professional violin maker, perfecting my own technique alongside the previously mentioned master. His guidance and experience has enabled me to develop and learn the secret of producing exceptional masterpieces, delicately balanced and carved, to fulfill the wants and needs of individuals and musicians alike.

I was looking to buy master violin. I've decided to order one from Szasz Friderich. Beautiful violin in tone and appearance - Astonishing beauty! Utterly exquisite.

Suono profondo, ottimi armonici, spettacolare per un violino di nuova manifattura. Bellissimo.

Even though it is a brand new violin, it  sounds like a mature violin. It has a deep and dark lower register. The high register is sweet and penetrating. Each note sings out in fast passage work
