Waefler Violins - Instruments with superior tonal qualities
Individually hand crafted, highly responsive and powerful instruments
Crafted with care for musicians of all ages and abilities
Hello and welcome to Waefler Violins - Handcrafted Violins, Bespoke Violas
My name is Rolf Waefler and I am an independent viola and violin 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 17 years experience my passion is to craft high quality handmade violins and violas.
Based on the great Italian masters (principally Stradivari, Guarneri and Guadagnini ) my instruments focus
on the acoustics and outstanding tonal qualities that are expected of a handcrafted instrument.
My speciality is the making of bespoke violas.
The responsiveness and projection of each instrument is blended with the ease of playability
and handling of the instrument in terms of weight and expert setup.
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.
