Welcome to Bouzouki World. Here you will find a large assortment of bouzouki family instruments. Stock and special order instruments for your viewing pleasure. You may order as pictured or to your specifications via fax, phone or email. All instruments are professional quality. Only the finest wood is used and crafted entirely by hand. Modern technology is used in measurement, adhesives and finish to achieve perfection in sound, playability and beauty. I have chosen Greeces finest luthiers to produce these high quality bouzoukia for export to the U.S.A. I travel to Greece twice a year to place orders and see the latest designs. The examples in the photo pages are some of the most popular styles and designs. All instruments can be ordered in tetrachordo or trichordo, which means 3 or 4 course strings. The mid size is called Tsouras and the mini is called Baglama. Pickups for amplification are available at additional cost. Please call and we can discuss your questions and design ideas. Guaranteed quality and workmanship. Occasionally I also have a high quality used bouzouki for sale. For anyone who is not familiar with this instrument I will explain names you will see in the pictures section. Bouzouki, bouzoukia (plural). Tsouras, tsourades (plural). Baglama, baglamades (plural. If you play any fretted instrument, you can play bouzouki. Method books are available in English and Greek.




Greeces Finest Bouzoukia

Buying a new professional quality bouzouki in Greece can be very difficult even for Greeks who speak the language. The instruments are not mass produced on an assembly line, hanging in music shops as we have guitars here with brand names, warranties, and polite knowledgeable salespeople. Those that one sees hanging in stores on boulevards are not for playing in most cases or will fall apart in a couple of years. They are for the tourist.The pro's order or buy only from well established luthiers who make only a few high quality instruments a year. Most makers can deliver a bouzouki in 2 to 3 months but it could take up to 6 months to get a special order with custom designs or if the maker is backed up with many orders. Some have one helper in the shop others several. 


Dimitris Zacharias was a student luthier with Zozef in the early years. He went to Germany in 1963 and began working for HOPF company making guitars and mandolins. By the end of his 9th year in Germany he had become  the chief luthier. In 1972 he was invited to return to Athens to work for Kyriakos Mouratidis and bring his German luthier techniques to construct professional class bouzoukia. Since then he went to work for himself making bouzoukia for many well known luthiers who put their labels in Zacharias bouzoukia. He has trained several luthiers who are very respected today. His work is impeccably clean and precise with each instrument having its own unique personality from being entirely hand made. Very consistant in sound, bassy but bright, soft sweet action and very comfortable neck shape. Special attention to fret heigth and finish. From mid to high price depending on how much natural abalone shell ornamentation is used on the bouzouki.


Adjustable truss rods standard. Also for trichordo which is a first. A good choice for the humid climates in the USA.


Dionisios Matsikas has catalogued his complete line of bouzoukia and is always in production on a large scale. He has many fine instruments in stock at all times and is inexpensive compared to some of the highly reputable one at a time by order luthiers.. I recommend and sell many of them around the world. You may also visit his shop in Kallithea section of Athens.



More recently the economics in Greece have improved greatly allowing a few makers to produce a few fine instruments that are ready for the player to try and buy. On my visits to Athens I like to go around to try out several instruments, check the quality and of course the prices. They are always going up like everything else. The value of the Dollar against the Euro is always fluctuating. I have learned over many years what to buy and from who. If you are going to Greece I will be happy to arrange a tour of the right shops and you will be treated as myself. A small fee to cover the cost of phone calls to Greece is all I charge for this service.
