Maciej Lacek

Maciej Lacek is a master luthier and member of the Polish Violin Makers Association. He is the son and graduate student of Jan Lacek, a well respected luthier who founded the Luthier School Institute in Nowy Targ, Poland. The knowledge that he gained from working with his father from an early age is evident in instruments that have remarkable tone, response, and projection, as well as great beauty of workmanship and varnish.  Many concertmasters, leading players and symphony orchestra musicians who perform regularly in United States, Western Europe and especially in Poland are playing on Mr. Lacek’s instruments.
