Award winning violin maker, Vasile Gliga, has been creating instruments since 1980 in his workshop in central Romania. Starting from humble beginnings working in a state-owned violin factory, his talent and passion for instrument making soon found him his independence. Handcrafting just two violins per month Gliga ran his own tiny workshop at home with the help of his wife.

Gliga’s skills and attention to detail quickly earnt him international recognition. In time this provided him the resources to train other craftsmen in his style of making.

Sourcing tone woods from the famous Carpathian Mountain region of central Europe, Gliga’s range expanded from student to professional levels. To this day, Gliga offers European quality violins at very affordable prices.
