Tobias Braun was born in Holzminden, Germany in 1960. Shortly after, his family moved to Perchtoldsdorf near Vienna, Austria. In 1983 he built his first concert guitar and a year later he completed a course about guitar making taught by José Romanillos. A second course followed in 1988, and a third course in 1989. In the same year, he completed his master’s certificate in Vienna. Tobias Braun has dedicated himself to the traditional Spanish guitar building school. Many of his guitars are models of famous masters such as Santos Hernandez and Manuel Ramirez.
The original for this instrument was owned by the guitarist Luise Walker. Her teacher, Miguel Llobet, personally brought this guitar direct from Santos Hernández’s workshop to Vienna in 1924. The basses have a wonderful warmth and the responsiveness is very fast and direct. The treble sing beautiflly and the middle of the guitar range is rich and colorful. It’s an excellent guitar for performers, collectors or aficionados. The guitar is all French-polished and fitted with Rubner tuners.
