The replica violins are made from the best quality tonewood that has been dried over many years. The work processes are also based on the practice of Ferdinand Kugler. This means the instruments become individual pieces.
The original red oil finish is only done if the customer really wants it. The Erika Ciesielski violin based on the Kugler 1955 model is painted in any desired shade. Completion takes 6-8 months from the time the wood is selected.
These master violins are made from selected first-class tonewood and are recreated with the same care as Ferdinand Kugler used to create his 1955 model.
The sound body is monitored with numerous quality tests until completion. The perfect handcraft in the woodwork as well as in the spirit painting have the highest quality standards. Each violin is unique and individual.
