In 2005 I opened my workshop in the quiet backstreets of Neukölln. The neighborhood around Reuterkiez with it's many busy cafes has since become one of the major centres of Berlin's art scene. The workshop is the centre of my work. Musicians try new instruments where there is an active, professional exchange of technical and creative ideas. Old instruments are repaired and adjusted to the mounting needs of today‘s performormer. Here, as well, the new instruments (solo, orchestral and five string basses) are passionatley designed and created.
