Waefler Violins - Instruments with superior tonal qualities

Waefler Violins

​ Hello and welcome to Waefler Violins

  My name is Rolf Waefler and I am an independent viola maker based in the East                

  Midlands of England and a graduate of the Newark School of Violin Making and holder    

  of J&A Beare's of London Diploma in Violin Making.
  With over 10 years experience my passion is to craft high quality stringed instruments    

  entirely by hand.

  Made with the best tonewoods 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 simply try out and play one

  of my instruments or indeed commission your own instrument - a unique violin or viola.
