Maker Background

Christian Albert Nürnberger, born in 1947, began his journey in bow making under the guidance of his grandfather, Carl Albert Nürnberger, from 1964 to 1966. Subsequently, he immersed himself in the craft at the VEB Sinfonia until 1977, where the Nürnberger workshop was incorporated. Following his master's examination in Markneukirchen in 1972, he ventured into independent craftsmanship, establishing his own shop in Berlin in 1978. His tenure in Berlin, marked by close collaboration with musicians and creative autonomy, proved instrumental in shaping his craft.

Notable recognition came in 1989, with a silver medal at the 1st international violin and bow making competition in Mittenwald. In 1994, Albert Nürnberger returned to Markneukirchen, revitalizing the esteemed family workshop. His bows, crafted in the traditional family style, boast darkly stained sticks treated with linseed oil, adorned with the iconic "Nürnberger eyes" on the frogs.

Marked with the distinguished ALBERT NURNBERGER family stamp, framed by two stars, his bows uphold the legacy of the renowned Nürnberger family workshop, renowned for its high-quality bows, particularly the Tourte model. The traditional family brand, "Albert Nürnberger", remains synonymous with exceptional craftsmanship, passed down through generations, including Christian Albert, continuing the legacy of excellence.
