stefan johann krattenmacher

maker and restorer of fine stringed instruments

I have three Krattenmacher cellos. I have been playing them all today comparing them. To be honest I don’t want to see any of them  go as they are all so good and I have put a lot of time into them…and not surprising they all have a similar sound quality…the very distinctive ‘Krattenmacher Sound’.It must be difficult for you Makers to put so much of yourself into such beautiful instruments and then let them go.
