and he was capable of fixing his own instruments.This is how the construction of
musical instruments began in our family.
I was born on a cold December day more accurately on 15 December
1969. I don't know how the years passed until the age of 11, but I remember
that in that period I was interested in hand planes ( which I thought were some
toy cars ) where with my grandfather Kalas Istvan of Czech nationality,
modelled the form of the instruments.
I was fascinated by those tools and for this reason
I was always around my grandfather's workshop, which
was my grandmother's kitchen.
At age of 14 I managed to manufacture my first
violin bridge which was appreciated by my grandfather, he
even used it for one of his violins.
In 1988 I graduated the vocational school and in the same year I
was hired by a musical instruments factory from Reghin.Meanwhile in 1990
I graduated the woodworking high school.
In 1990 I was hired by a private musical instruments factory, where
I graduated the foreman school and in 2001 I was certified as a luthier 1.
During 15 years in the factory my work was appreciated in
America, Japan, Germany, Switzerland, but they were not signed
with my name ,because I worked under a blazon thus I decided to
open my own business.
My instruments signed by me are made traditionally and for me ,they are my children in my family.
