Manufacture of instruments in Galicia
Based in Santiago de Compostela, Gonzalo Bayolo brings together respect for tradition and an innovative spirit into the instrument making process. Led by a deep knowledge of the science and history of his trade, he imbues his creations with dynamism and an original interpretation, granting them a unique character. He also works widely as a restorer, holding a "Hans Weishaar" certificate.
He actively participates in the internationally renowned Oberlin Violin Making Workshop (Violin Society of America, United States), a meeting point for like-minded professionals seeking to share ideas and experiences. One of the highlights at Oberlin is the collaborative making of replicas from Cremonese originals available at the workshop
