The Full Story
The origins of Knobloch Strings begins with Jiri Knobloch, a guitarist, luthier, artist and creator of the first Knobloch Actives strings in Germany in 1971. His passion for the guitar and desire to find the perfect sound led him to create Knobloch Actives, high quality strings designed for professional guitarists.
In 2009 Gilles Baudu, a guitarist with the same passion as Jiri, decided to restart the business, move it to the province of Girona (Spain) and put into practice the knowledge he gained from the Maestro. From that moment on, the strings have been manufactured in Spain and distributed worldwide.
Thanks to working closely with a large family of artists, luthiers and professionals from the music world, we continue to discover
new and better ways to make your guitar sing and come to life.
If it’s true that everything moves with vibrations, we like to think that our work helps the world vibrate more fully through art.
