stefan johann krattenmacher

maker and restorer of fine stringed instruments

I am constantly working on the further development of the 5-string. The playability, the sound quality, the volume as well as the balance between the higher and lower registers are one of my main concerns. However, I do not commit myself to a particular model, but rather make the model choice in collaboration with the musician in order to satisfy the needs and preferences of the individual and his orchestra.
