Vladimir Druzhinin – Guitar Maker

Vladimir Druzhinin, born in 1983 in Novosibirsk, Russia, into a family of scientists, embarked on a fascinating journey that led him from the world of physics to the realm of guitar craftsmanship. His trajectory from academia to artisanry reflects his diverse talents and passions that converged into the artistry of building exquisite musical instruments.

After completing his studies in physics and accelerator physics, Vladimir’s passion for music took him in a new direction. He delved into the world of strings, studying double bass at the Novosibirsk State Music College while simultaneously participating in the local jazz scene as a bassist.

In 2010, Vladimir’s path took him to Moscow, where he crossed paths with Timofey Tkach, a pivotal figure in his journey. Under Tkach’s guidance, he transitioned into the art of guitar making as his primary profession. Today, he operates his own workshop, crafting a variety of instruments including classical guitars, lutes, and engaging in restoration work. He’s also actively developing his own design for an acoustic bass.

The construction of acoustic instruments is a captivating and intricate endeavor. It evolves from a craft to an art, intertwining precision with creativity, and leading to a thrilling journey of challenges and discoveries.

In his instrument-making philosophy, Vladimir draws inspiration from the Classical Spanish School, which has shaped the foundation of guitar making. Figures like Antonio de Torres Jurado, along with subsequent craftsmen like Manuel Ramirez, Domingo Esteso, Santos Hernandez, and Hermann Hauser I, all contributed to refining the art of guitar crafting. The legacy culminated with Jose Ramirez III and Miguel Rodriguez in the mid-20th century.

Central to the work of a guitar maker is the understanding of the physics of sound production. Each musical instrument is fundamentally an intricate acoustic entity – a resonator – that demands meticulous design and fine-tuning.

Vladimir’s mission is to create professional instruments of the utmost caliber, characterized by exceptional acoustic qualities. To achieve this, he meticulously selects the finest materials, conducts precise woodworking, and follows a meticulous procedure for tuning the soundboard and body.

Attention to aesthetics and ergonomics is paramount in his creations. In this pursuit, he stays true to the classical traditions set by the legendary Spanish guitar makers. The essence of his craft is not only in the instruments he shapes but in the harmonious synthesis of art and acoustics that they embody.
