Petko Petkov Interview 3 Flagship models
My flagship models are the violin Stradivari Cremonese 1715 and the violoncello Stradivari Piatti.
I handcraft master instruments which are suitable for both professional musicians and advanced students.
My work is based on the Italian style.
The range of models I handcraft regularly are Stradivari, Amati, Scarampella and from the Guarnieri family – Vieuxtemps, Lafont, Il Cannone, Heifetz and Jarnovich.
I also accept orders for custom made models. In 2009 I have handcrafted a violin with a scroll lion head. Currently it is owned by a man living in the USA.
When I have to complete a unique custom model I get in touch with the client in order to clarify all the details starting from the appearance and going to the sound characteristics of the instrument.
I cater to musicians from all over the world.
