Tradition & Experience
Stephan Leitzinger opened a workshop for woodwind instruments in spring 1989.
Stephan comes from a family with a tradition of making musical instruments.
His passion for the creation of woodwind instruments began as a child, when he started working with his father in the workshop.
Stephan learned how to build bassoons with the Heckel Company in Wiesbaden. After several years with Heckel, he went on to work with other renowned musical instrument manufacturers, in Germany and France. During these years of working for other companies, he gained much valuable experience in the art and science of woodwind manufacture and repair.
