I met Hans Pluhar over 15 years ago, in London, visiting his workshop to consult him about sound adjustment/improvement that had to be done on my violin. The final result has completely blown me away, but also the dedication and his effort in keeping track of every little change that has been tested in the process, on a separate piece of paper, to document it. Since then I have always had my instruments restored and adjusted at Hans Pluhar’s workshop. Recently I flew from London to Salzburg to have a major restoration of my 17th century violin, and was yet again very impressed with the superb craftsmanship and the sound improvement. I would recommend Hans Pluhar wholeheartedly to everyone.
