Hans Edler is a German luthier born in 1889 in Frankfurt Germany. A third generation violin maker in whom both his grandfather and his father are violin makers.
Hans started working with Guiseppe Fiorini in 1911 in Munich. Being the last student of Fiorini, Hans perfected all the aspects of his craft and started his own workshop in 1919 in Munich. His violins were made between 1919 and 1954 with his career being disrupted for a short period of time due to military service in the First World War.
Elder was a founding member of the The Entente Internationale des Luthiers et Archetiers- the International Association of Violin and Bow Makers. He was also the secretary of the Bavarian Association of music instrument makers. Hans Edler was a connoisseur of old instruments and with his knowledge, Edler edited the fifth edition of Albert Fuchs book "Taxe der Streich Instrumente" - a guide on how to value string instruments. Hans described his personal model as being based on his "own principles of design." Consistent with the training of his youth, Hans was also acclaimed for his ability to improve the sound of tired old instruments that were thought to be worn out.
