Handmade musical instruments


Nikolai Tambovsky

The violin and its family are unique, as no other instrument is as close to the range and timbre of the human voice. This sound is comparable to the 17th century Italian bel canto style, which is the pinnacle of singing. Its characteristic are richness, warmth, softness of timbre, and depth. The Cremonese masters were the closest to reproducing that sound in their instruments.

Their spirits and ideas are alive in Nikolai Tambovsky violins, violas, cellos, basses, and baroque instruments. Performers use them woldwide because they have the intensity and power to fill a concert hall while holding the richness and soul of the bel canto sound.

Join the ranks of professionals who made Tambovsky instruments their choice.

Assistant Principle Violin at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, USA “Your violins has as beautiful tone quality as the Guadagnini, but a more powerful projection. I use it now in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Chicago Pro Musica, and for solo playing. In my opinion you are the most talented and accomplished contemporary string instrument maker in the world.”
