stefan johann krattenmacher

maker and restorer of fine stringed instruments

Each of Stefan’s basses that I have tried have instantly felt ready to go! They are comfortable and accessible (even for small people like me) and have great projection. I used one of Stefan’s basses for a solo debut at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and had to be reminded that I was not playing in Wembley Football Stadium! He clearly has an instinct for the player, as his basses are ‚players instruments‘.
