The GEWA Germania series emphasises brilliant features in the universal language of music. For over 300 years, string instruments have been manufactured in the Vogtland. Our Masters spice up this longstanding expirience with the youhtful passion with which they build the GEWA Germania instruments. All these instruments are manufactured with combined efforts and out of high-quality materials. The varnish appliaction is extra thin for ideal vibration behaviour. The sound spectrum of the instruments does not result in losses through thick varnish layers.
The Maestro instruments are available in different levels of quality based on the different wood qualities and are normally supplied in a non set-up version. That means these instruments come without the following parts: strings, tailpiece, chin rest, sound post setter, bridge and GEWA label. Upon request we can also supply these instruments set-up. Our luthiers will equip the instruments with high quality parts. If you want a set-up Maestro, please add "100" to the regular item number. The set-up Maestro violins/ violas consist of: - Thomastik Dominant strings - Aubert bridge - Tailpiece with a Wittner fine tuner (also without GEWA label upon request - please note / individual set-up also possible upon request)
Our double basses workshop has a long tradition of manually producing of the highest level. Our masters are responsible for the entire procedure starting with the wood selection, through storage and processing right up until the instrument is completely finished. So, in each instrument the look, the sound and the color have been created by their own luthier. These instruments are part of the orchestra scene for decades and they can be heard in the largest concert halls in the world, from the New York Philharmonic to the Scala in Milan.
