Product Description

Santos Hernandez (Madrid, 1873-1943) started an apprenticeship very early in Valentin Viudes’s workshop and then moved to José Ortega’s workshop in Granada/Spain. After moving to a few other workshops and serving as a soldier for Spain, he eventually took over Enrique Garcia’s position in Manuel Ramirez’s workshop in 1905. His involvement in the building of Andrés Segovia’s famous 1912 Manuel Ramirez sealed his reputation as an extraordinary luthier. He opened his first own workshop in 1921 after having worked for Manuel Ramirez’s widow along with Domingo Esteso.

This beautiful instrument was built in 1922 by Santos Hernandez. It also features Marcelino Lopez Nieto’s reconstruction label dated 1979, from the time when he worked on it. The sound is fantastic with a clear rich tone, long sustain and great balance. The charming old-world timbre is completed by an impressive dynamic and a lot of overtones.
