Luthier know-how, for everyone

The Koumartzis family is a new generation family of instrument makers, who believe that knowledge is to be shared. For this reason, we do not keep secrets from anyone who wants to deal with this art … because art is what we care about. Anastasios Koumartzis, the father of the family has already written two separate guides describing production and calculation of the components for the construction of the carved baglama and also for the pear-shaped musical instrument. Moreover, luthier seminars will be organized for beginner and advanced level!
