After graduating from the Liszt Ferenc Zeneakademia in Budapest, where he studied instrument making under the tutelage of esteemed Hungarian luthiers Laszlo Nemessanyi and János Héjja, Akos set up his own workshop in 2006. However, as his work is such high demand he now employs 5 luthiers to assist him.
We sell a lot of his instruments because they have excellent sound quality at a reasonable price.
