Balazs Prohaszka was trained in Hungary in the great European luthiery traditions, learning the craftsmanship of stringed-instrument making and the meticulous skills of museum-grade restoration work. Yet, despite this remarkable training and experience – ranging from violins and double basses to lutes and bows – his original fascination with guitars remained. In 2003 he moved to Northern Ireland – and the inspiring workshop of Lowden Guitars.
A number of years later, he redesigned the entire acoustic line of the legendary Zemaitis Guitars range, which was reissued by Kanda-Shokai in Japan.
Following a couple of years as a consultant in guitar technology and design in the Far East, Balazs returned to Northern Ireland, where he continues to develop some innovative inlay and bevel techniques for Avalon Guitars.
