Andreas Franke

Franke Violins

At the end of 2005, driven by a desire to explore the world, Andreas took on a position at Orfeo Strings in Hong Kong where he met his future wife, Amy. In 2007, they moved to Amy’s native Thailand and Franke Violins Thailand opened its doors for trading.

Andreas was born into a violin-making family in Leipzig, Germany in 1978. From 1995 to 1998 he studied and worked as an apprentice in his father, Wolfgang’s workshop which led to him winning the first prize in a competition for German apprentices in 1998. 

In 1999, Andreas received special training in the field of bow making and repairing in the workshop of Jochen Schmidt in Dresden. Schmidt is recognised as the world’s leading expert in German bows and his own bows are played by musicians in the finest orchestras in the world. 

From 2000 to 2002, Andreas returned to Leipzig to work in his father’s workshop, and in 2003, he accepted a position in the famous workshop of Christine Eriks in Vienna. Here, he repaired and serviced instruments and bows of the highest calibre from travelling soloists and members of the Vienna & Berlin Philharmonic and the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, among many others.
