Werkstatt Beijing bei Nacht

Welcome to IESTA! (iesta beijing, tel. +86 10 64581674)

The six-hour time difference - in winter seven hours - doesn't matter: Our German-Chinese company IESTA Musical Instruments is already looking back on fifteen years of successful development, making and worldwide distribution of high quality stringed instruments. The company, based in Karlsruhe, Germany, since 1996, has established a sister company in Tianzhu business quarter Beijing (Peking) in 2001, which is also the location of the company's first own workshop. Since that time a couple of excellent Chinese instrument makers are traditionally manufacturing modern stringed instruments upon historical European examples and baroque instruments in various models. Furthermore, the company is a pioneer in the development of new technologies for the production of carbon bows.

New workshop has been opened

After one year of construction, on October 22nd, 2011, the
new IESTA workshop in Dasungezhuang near Beijing has been opened. With its new workshop, the company has a much more modern and enlarged production place as before, conform to the requirements of instrument making and also offering best conditions of work to the employees - amongst them new designed working places and modern common and social rooms in an atmosphere of pure creativity. more ...


Manufactury and worldwide trading

At IESTA, both production and distribution come from one source. The instruments produced in smaller series or as custom-built individual pieces are sold in Asia and in the Pacific area from China directly. Clients in Germany, in Europe and abroad are served by the Head office in Karlsruhe. Here exists a well-appointed warehouse - also for bows, accessories and instruments made by other producers. more...
