"Practice doesn't make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect."  Vincent T. Lombardi

"The beautiful cellos which I have seen by Erich Schweiger have been remarkable in both craftsmanship and sound production.  They are certainly the equal of more expensive makers.  Their ease of playability and rich full tone also contribute to their excellent value." 

                                       Carter Enyeart, Professor of Music

                                                University of North Texas



 

Each instrument hand-crafted by luthier Erich Schweiger embodies a legacy of master methods and formulas centuries old.  His artistry and award-winning recognition as an instrument maker uniquely compliment his status as a violinist.  At four years of age, Erich entered the musical world under the tutelage of renowned teacher Dr. Shinichi Suzuki at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio.  His family tradition of musicianship continues today!
