The name Tempel is a guarantee of the highest quality and aesthetic and the absolutely precise artistic creation using the highest quality materials. Each piece we send to you, will be a jewel on your musical instrument. Musicians and musical instrument makers all over the world have given us their trust over a period of many years. The Tempel company was established by Otto Tempel senior in 1928 in Weiten-Gesäß (nearby Michelstadt). Very good quality ivory jewellery and special decorative wood-turned articles as well as parts for musical instruments have been produced. The son, Mr. Otto Tempel junior, relocated the company to Michelstad in 1964. At that time he enlarged the production of the company tremendously. The name of Tempel became synonymous for high quality parts for musical instruments. Now, the third generation, the grandson of the company’s founder, Mr. Knut Tempel, took over the family-busyness und again enlagerd the huge variety of highest quality accessoires especially for the group of classical stringed instruments. The workshop new building in neighbouring Erbach was opened in 2009.
