Gabriel Pralea I started building string instruments in 1999.
In subsequent years, I specialized in doublebass making with the help of Master lute-maker Sergio Scaramelli, with whom I restored some prestigious ancient Italian instruments. During this experience I learned several tricks that inspired me and turned out very useful when I started building my own instruments.

In 2009 I opened my own independent lute making workshop in Ferrara, where I make and restore doublebasses and cellos. I'm also continuing a close cooperation with Master Sergio Scaramelli.

In 2012 I took part in XIII Cremona International Lute Making Competition.

I sell my instruments worldwide, specially in Japan, China e Germany.
