About me

Leihinstrumente.de is a combination of a string instruments specialized online shop as well as a professionally equipped workshop. As a skilled luthier I have been specializing in reselling and renting. My online shop offers a wide selection of string instruments for beginners up to professional musicians, children up to grownups. When deciding my suppliers for instruments I first focus on the highest possible standards. Then each instrument goes through my quality check both when entering and leaving my storage. Each instrument is tested according to playability and fine-tuning is performed, since intonation is crucial to all string instruments. This has become my standard procedure and has guaranteed a maximum of reliability. For the musician it simply means effortless playing.
