Waefler Violins

​ Hello and welcome to Waefler Violins

 My name is Rolf Waefler and I am an independent violin maker based in the East      Midlands of England and a graduate of the renowned Newark School of Violin Making  (NSVM) and holder of J&A Beare's of London Diploma in Violin Making.
 My passion is to make high quality stringed instruments entirely hand crafted in the  Italian tradition.
 Made with the best tonal woods my instruments exhibit exceptional tonal qualities  with bespoke viola making being a speciality of mine.

 Please browse my site and contact me if you would like to try out and play one of my  instruments or indeed commission your own  instrument - a unique violin, viola or  cello. 


​Bespoke  or traditional instruments with fittings and strings of choice
