Sprenger's son Christoph was born in 1946 in St. Gallen. From 1964 until 1968,
he attended the Swiss school of violin making in Brienz (Switzerland). He
continued his education in various violin-making ateliers. In 1971, he began
working in his father's business. After his master examination, Christoph
Sprenger specialised in the caring, repairing and restoring of valuable old
instruments. In 1981, Christoph Sprenger took over the leadership of his
father's studio. Even after taking over the business, he remains in continuous
exchange with violin restorers worldwide, keeping his professional
knowledge up to date.
Sprenger is no longer active on a daily base in our atelier. However, his broad
and deep knowledge is still important. Therefore, he is still active as an
adviser for expertise.
