Founded in 1950 by Georges Cabasse, the Cabasse firm inherited not only its creator’s name, but also his genius. Georges Cabasse is from the world of music, and he is gifted with a special talent. He has a unique memory for sounds. Probably a gift from his ancestors, hailing back to a stringed instrument maker who crafted the first violin signed Cabasse in 1740 at Mirecourt in the Vosges Mountains. Five generations of craftsmen followed him, pursuing the tradition and supplying Europe with violins, violas and cellos, most of which are still being played in orchestras today. The fact remains that Georges Cabasse’s obsession is to perfectly reproduce the concerts he loves, without any alteration, coloration or distortion in the sound. This boundless passion has led him to relentlessly innovate, transmit and share his exacting requirements with the rest of the Cabasse team, so that all ears can enjoy the essence and thrill of pure sound.
