THE INSTRUMENT'S FAMILY

Nestled within the vast Rodopi Mountains of Southern Bulgaria lies the majestic valley of Orpheus, mythological home to the father of songs and the great poet of antiquity.

There is an old story that Stradivari and Amati bought much of their wood from the Rodopi Mountains.

Part of the secret of Orpheus Valley Guitars’ sound lies in the acoustic characteristics of the Spruce and Maple found in these ancient forests.

The history of Orpheus Valley Guitars begins early in the 20th Century with a man by the name of Dimitar Georgiev. He began his career as a gunsmith, eventually designing and building machine guns that were mechanical art pieces of their time.

Summoned to fight in World War I, Georgiev decides that his art form produces a horrific tool that hurts men, and turns his back on the craft.

While still on the battle fronts of Europe, he begins to find solace in music, playing the mandolin. Constantly forced to repair his war-battered instrument, he develops his skills as a luthier.

Returning home to Bulgaria, he produces his own hand carved instruments: mandolins, violins, and finally guitars. The quality of these prototypes earn him a prestigious apprenticeship in Markneukirchen, Germany.

Finally, in 1924, he opens his shop in Kremona, with the help of his brothers and two German master craftsmen.

Today, the company employs 100 craftsmen and support staff, who constantly strive to improve the look, feel, and sound of their guitars and bowed instruments.
