From what I know, Jan Dvorak is a trade name used by Knilling for its "master" grade of string instruments and bows. It looks like they also market basses by E. Wilfer of Germany. My guess is that your bass was made by Strunal in the Czech Republic. Strunal makes basses in several grades.

I'd verify that information. Jul 30, 3. Thanks for the input. The length -bottom to top of scroll is Nut to bridge is It is advertised as a Orchestra Full size base. The action is high, and volume is incredible. Jul 31, 4. Jul 14, Australia.

Famous Czech compose Czech luthiers string instrument makers, or "lute makers" from the original French have always been known as expert craftsmen, with a tradition dating to the 16th century. Inthe Luby School of Violin Making was established. Strunal uses that traditional artisanship that has been passed down through families, combines it with state of the art technology design and is now the largest string instrument manufacturing facility in Europe. They are a favorite of concert violinists, and especially students and teachers.

Today, Strunal violins, guitars and other instruments are used around the world. Harold Moore, a longtime violin teacher, says: "Strunal violins deliver old-world know-how and attention to detail for amazing affordable prices.

The company also offers bows and accessories, such as pegs, fingerboards, chinrests, bridges. Each category of instrument comes in a variety of models. Violins are available in 12 concert models and 7 student models. Models vary by size, type of wood used varyingly described on the Strunal website as "seasoned," "graduated for tone" and "flamed" and the wood finish, or varnish.

Strunal manufactures an amazing number of instruments. Each year, the company makes approximately 3, violins, 17, guitars and 5, other instruments. The majority of these, 95 percent, are exported to more than 50 countries. The tradition of luthiers means there are workers in their factory whose families have been making string instruments for centuries.

And the location in the Czech mountains allows them to take advantage of seasoned and fine-grade woods, which they can choose for their resonance qualities.

The availability of these woods also allows Strunal to keep its prices reasonable. As Harold Moore sums up the location, "The fresh mountain air and beautiful surroundings seemed to impart a refreshing sense of calm purpose in the fine craftsmen I saw working there. There was no feeling of urgency in the factory--each craftsperson took the time to do the job right. We believe that through traditional craftsmanship, modern technology and historic location, Strunal is able to guarantee its customers "that the instruments from Strunal will have the superb acoustic features associated with traditional European design and quality.Made in the Czech republic of high quality spruce topmaple back, ribs, and scrolland ebony fingerboard, and pegs.

Photos are part of the description. Welcome to ask for more details. No return, only for serious buyer. About the maker. A native of Western Bohemia, Josef Dvorak lived from at Kralovske Porici u Sokolova, where he also completed his compulsory school education.

As a schoolboy he attended optional hobby classes and there fell in love with wood. It was only natural for him to apply, infor an apprentice post at Cremona. In Dvorak completed his apprenticeship with very good marks in both theoretical and practical subjects thanks to the experienced master violin-maker Miroslav Pikart who helped him to develop his talent.

After completing the apprentice school, Cremona's management appointed him, in view of his overall good marks, particularly in the specialized subjects, to the master violins shop, where he gained new experience under his older fellow workers, the present master violin-makers Emil Lupac and Karel Zadrazil. From toDvorak attended the three-year postgraduate master school under the master violin-maker Emil Lupac, which furnished a solid background for his ingenuity and skill as the maker of master instruments.

Since then he has built several instruments which are now played by students of the Conservatory. Dvorak makes his instruments to the Stradivari and Guarneri models.

He is skillful in producing fine-sounding instruments and won a bronze medal in the competition in Bagnacavallo.We know all about Kings and Kays Dec 2, 1. Apr 17, London, UK. There's very little info around about the history of European student ply basses, even though there are loads of them around still keeping budget bassists happy decades later.

And while legend and value grows around Kays and Kings over the pond, giving them their very own iconic status, what of the mighty fine Czech and German made plys that presumably kept British 2WW forces going, provided the thump in all those dance bands up and down the country, and are still keeping people like me playing today?

They did, 40 years apart. I've been in touch with someone at Strunal who's been exporting instruments sinceshe had a lot of answers. The factory at Luby, once called Cremona, now Strunal standing for "Stringed Instruments from Luby" has been supplying Europe and the US with decent student basses since at least the s.

They weigh 5 to 10 pounds more than most student basses except the Gliga Genial line, which come fairly close - though they're carved, making the weight that much harder to understand. I finally managed to get a halfway-decent tone out of a Cremona bass last year by using a lot of time in tweaking the setup, and enhancing that yet further with a 'Chuck Traeger' style maple soundpost.

I've since had modest but useful success on several other laminated basses using this hourglass-shaped soundpost, so will keep trying it whenever overly quiet laminated instruments wander into the shop.

But seriously. I've come to refer to the Cremona as 'great for knocking down doors' as I've never yet seen substantial damage to one of these monsters. And the most painful aspect of these boulders is that it's often teenaged girls stuck playing them, bassists about 3 times the weight of their basses. That's not a very friendly ratio, when it comes to packing a bass around. Dec 3, 3.

Dear Gerard, the Cremona basses you are talking about are the Czech made basses or the horrendous Chinese crap? Dec 3, 4. I suppose they could have been Chinese-made, but then the labels would have been false, as all of the Cremona basses I've seen have carried a small label inside saying 'made in Czechoslovakia' as memory serves - it's been a while since last looking at one Wouldn't be the first time Chinese products carried misinformation on the label.
