Tomasz (Thomas) Kowalski of Nowry Targ, Poland is a masterful artist among the elite names in European lutherie
Mr. Kowalski's pristine and meticulous care that goes into the aesthetics of each violin is equally matched with the colourful tone and powerful acoustics. Here's a maker who clearly loves what he does as it shows in every instrument.
The sound of these instruments is rich, full and powerful. The mature and glowing warm nuances make it a violin for professional players or amateurs who want "the best" in a new violin without the $20k price tag!
Important Consideration: Some Kowalski violins provided by a distribution company are made by his apprentice workshop, with downgraded woods, and do not have a certificate.
Fiddleheads purchases from Kowalski directly and only sells violins made only by him personally using his own private wood lot materials and accompanied with his own signed certificates with photographs.
Keep these factors in mind when comparison shopping.
