Samuel Zygmuntowicz, born 1956 in Philadelphia, was already a prize-winning sculptor before beginning his instrument-making studies at age 13. He has studied making and restoration with Peter Prier, Carl Becker and Rene Morel. His work has won high honors in international competitions, including double gold medals for violin tone and workmanship.

Sam has built instruments for Joshua Bell, Yo-Yo Ma, and the entire Emerson String Quartet. A violin he made for Isaac Stern holds an auction record for any instrument by a living maker. He is an active researcher and Creative Director of Strad3D.org, with a team of scientists, violinmakers, and musicians. The quest is to move past myths, to understand what a violin does, not what it looks like or costs.
