The materials, the construction techniques and all the varnishes follow accurately the old processes: every phase of the construction is completely handmade from the wood preparation to the painting of the instrument. Every detail is made with attention following the requests and the specific needs of the customer: inlays, decorations and carvings are always well-finished.


For Varazzani Andrea the fine tuning of the strings is the most delicate and interesting part of the work. The perfect balance of the instrument is reached with the synergy between the musician and the luthier: together, in the workshop, they seek and find the best compromise among the instrument potentiality, the acoustic needs and the musician’s comfort.
