Elià Fabré Capdevila

Born in a small Mediterranean fishing town near Barcelona city, Elià Fabré i Capdevila made his first violin at 16 whilst studying with the Chacon Luthiers.  A love for craftsmanship had always been evident, as Elià could often be seen happily building and fixing things with a saw and hammer in hand as a young boy.  Inspired by his time with the Chacon Luthiers, Elià left for England to study at the Newark School after graduating from secondary school.

We are delighted to add Elià's instruments to our selection of new makers, his passion and enthusiasm for making clearly shines through in the quality and beautiful tone of his instruments.
