“For years I have been visiting Bas his workshop. He is an able craftsman, honest, friendly, patient and intelligent. Sharing and accumulating knowledge is his motto. His instruments are wonderfull and he is a skillfull repairer. Recently I entrusted Bas with adjusting the soundpost of my viola. I am very happy with the result. My viola sounds its best again. It a joy to work with a violinmaker who understands your musical needs and takes the time to regulate the the sound of your instrument properly. I recognize the tradition of skilfullnes and mildness. It is a joy to experience this tradition with Bas.”

“Bas helps you out for anything regarding bowed string instruments. Rentals, sales or repairs. As a customer the pleasant communication and quick service makes you feel welcome. A wide variety of instruments to choose from so you can really find your musical match. Violins, violas and cellos that the “Strijkersklas” project bought from Bas are maintained yearly. I warmly recommend my pupils Maas Vioolbouw. The business is conveniently located in Amsterdam. Parking a car in the area can be time consuming.”

“I would like to thank your for the way you have done the maintenance work on my Auguste Delivet (1907) violin. It is a joy to play the violin and it feels as if it is born again. The new bridge has improved the sound greatly and the violin looks beautifull. I sense now that my playing is not as bad as I thought it was….

I send my students to Maas Vioolbouw in Amsterdam, knowing they come to their lessons with good materials. The rental violins sound great and are of high quality. To me it is very important that rental violins are working properly so I can focus on what is all about: teaching children to play the violin. Using the Maas rental violins I don’t loose any precious time during the lessons setting and tuning the violins”
