About This Item

The Slovakian string maker WARCHAL only started making strings in 2003. In the decade since then, the distinctly European sound of WARCHAL strings has impressed many American violinists. Their AMETYST strings SHARe many of the same tonal characteristics as their warm and well-rounded KARNEOL line, but with a brighter, purer and more focused sound. With their low tension and gut-like feel, the brighter AMETYST matches well with a high-end, dark sounding violin.

About This Brand

WARCHAL STRINGS draws on the experience of two generations of violinists.

In 1960, Bohdan Warchal, an outstanding violinist, established the Slovak Chamber Orchestra. Under his leadership, the orchestra developed into a distinguished ensemble and gained worldwide recognition. Warchal and his orchestra gave almost 2500 concerts in all of Europe, as well as in the USA, South America, Australia, China, Korea and Japan. During his 40 years of directing the orchestra, he produced more than 150 records and CDs. Bohdan Warchal also taught at several universities in Central Europe. He had a very specific relationship to sound, which was inherited by his son, Bohdan Warchal, Jr. In 1998 an asteroid was named after Bohdan Warchal.

Bohdan Warchal, Jr., graduated from Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, Czech Republic. Since 1989, he has been a member and later the concertmaster of the Slovak Chamber Orchestra. He is pedagogically active in the Conservatory and the Academy of Musical Arts in Bratislava, Slovakia, and is the author of the book "The Natural Way of Playing the Violin." As a violinist, he has been searching for an ideal instrument, the bow but also the musical instrument strings. He has always been captivated by the world of sound and the production of instruments. Within a short period of time, he managed to constitute a team of experts from Slovakia and from abroad, and to start research. In 2003, he established the company WARCHAL, whose ambition is to produce strings of the highest quality. He currently coordinates research in the company's sound laboratory.
