Mityo (Anglicized "Mitio") Dimitrov is a brilliant rising star in Europe's Master violin maker's circle
His instruments are inspired by the works of great Italian masters Stradivari and Guarneri and he only works with the woods "of excellent sound qualities from the Balkan region." Above all, he prefers to work with naturally dried sycamore and high quality spruce and created his own alcohol varnish formula.
Mr. Dimitrov is a member of the Bulgarian regional Association of the Master-luthiers and the Chamber of Handicraftsmen. He participates in exhibitions and competitions in Bulgaria and in the International Competition in Trienne (Italia) and wins prestigious accolades. For instance, in 2009 at the 12th International Triennial Competition his violin ranked 12th Place of the 198 violins from around the world.
Fun fact: Mr. Dimitrov is passing his superb violin-making craft on to his talented young daughters.
