Jake Jiwon Han established his reputation as a skilled instrument restorer and maker in Korea at the Stradi Workshop in Seoul. Stradi workshop is the designated workshop of Kumho Asiana Foundation Instruments and Songwoo Trading Company, regular distributors of instruments for John & Arthur Beare. In 2018 Jake won a Certificate of Merit for Violin Tone from the Violin Society of America, and currently crafts his own violins & violas by commission. Jake Jiwon Han’s instruments are in demand by advanced and professional level players because of his fine workmanship and their incredibly nuanced sound. Jake's acoustical adjustment and set up skills are also in high demand among these players. He currently splits his time between restorations at LA Violin Shop and building new instruments in his home workshop.
