The Richard Williams Sr. line of instruments are partially crafted at our affiliated private shop in Romania from seasoned European wood. They are then shipped to our shop rough and unfinished. Once these instruments are in K.C. Strings, our professional craftsmen do the finish work on them which is more extensive than on the R.C. Williams line. The more complex sealer and varnish allow the instruments to be extremely resonant and beautiful. They are given a professional set-up by the craftsmen in our shop. These instruments work very well with intermediate and advanced students.
The Williams & Krutz line of instruments are crafted solely in our Kansas City workshop by our makers. All aspects of the crafting process are controlled and overseen by luthiers Anton Krutz and Rick Williams. We hand choose every single piece of European and American maple and spruce used to make these instruments. The wood is then aged for five to ten years before the instrument crafting begins. Anton's own proprietary sealer and varnish are used. These instruments are then given a professional set-up by the craftsmen in our shop. Highly advanced high school and college students tend to play these instruments.
The Anton Krutz instruments are the top line of instruments crafted at K.C. Strings. Master luthier Anton Krutz constructs these instruments with the help of the best makers at K.C. Strings. Only the highest grade European and American maple and spruce are used for these instruments, and are carefully selected by Krutz. The wood is then aged for five to ten years before the instrument making begins. Each instrument is professionally set-up by Krutz and his staff. These instruments are played by advanced students and professionals throughout the U.S. and Europe.
The uniqueness of the Krutz instruments comes from Anton's proprietary sealer and varnish. These produce the same quality of sound as the fine Italian instruments of the old masters.
