GALATA LUTHIERS - "Offering high quality handmade instruments and strings delectably cultivating a more transparent, sustainable, and compassionate music industry." ABOUT US - Set to find an instrument that would be of exceptional sound, for studio recorded performances, award winning musician Georgios Marinakis found himself in a devastating position since there was limited availability in the market. As a response to the lack of transparency and limited assortments he took the initiative to create his own line of string instruments in 2017.
Two years later, in a small studio located in Istanbul, Turkey he managed to introduce his first handmade instruments. He presented and performed with his first handmade Bouzouki and Oud instrument at the Turkish Presidential Complex for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and former Greek President Alexis Tsipras. With his first Oud instrument he also performed at the Grand Music Hall "Megaro Mousikis" in Athens, Greece.
Mr. Marinakis did not want to settle with just crafting instruments; In late 2019, he constructed his first string making machine that he made on his own and started working with a team of dedicated professionals to firmly establish his newly founded company Galata Luthiers.
Today, the company offers high quality handmade instruments and string for several instruments that have been tested for acoustic and studio recorded performance. Our mission is to cultivate a more transparent, sustainable, and compassionate music industry by introducing uniquely handcrafted products of the highest quality.
