Our craftsman

Đoko Medojević
Đoko Medojević

Born on May 8, 1958, in Mojkovac, where he lives and works. He is a carpenter by profession, and he has been crafting gusle and woodcarvings for the past forty years. Crafting gusle requires a lot of patience and skill. It takes from 15 to 30 days to make one gusle, depending on the level of details. He creates gusle in a traditional manner, handcrafting the wood using chisels. Gusle are made from a single piece of wood, what contributes to the quality and durability of the craftsmanship. Throughout his career, he has crafted over 50 gusle models.

More about services we offer

Skin replacement
Replacing the skin will restore and refresh the look of your gusle. This process involves the careful removal of the old and worn skin from gusle, and the placement of new skin so the instrument gets new life and sound. Replacing the skin will improve sound quality, ensure better stability and longevity of the instrument.

Strings replacement
We offer a professional service for replacing strings on gusle and gusle bows. We use quality nylon for gusle and authentic horse hair for the bow. String maintenance on gusle and gusle bow is crucial for sound quality, and this combination gives very good results. Through a careful replacement process, your gusle will retain its authenticity and distinctive sound.

Painting (lacquering)
Varnishing the gusle will give your old gusle a new shine. Keep the authentic appearance of the gusle instrument or choose a new color as you wish.

"Receptive, responsible, kind, ready to help with the selection, if you are choosing a gift for someone. Immediacy and friendliness are certainly two qualities that set them apart from everyone else, and for that reason they were also the reason for their selection. Very high quality, great sounding gusle, and I will certainly return to them again and wholeheartedly recommend them to everyone! 5* and big BRAVO! [Note: google translate]"

"The first thing that comes to mind is how very flexible everyone has been with shipping. The gusle was supposed to arrive in Prague in 12 days for my husband's birthday. In order for them to succeed, even their uncle, who happened to be visiting them, helped. If it weren't for him, the surprise wouldn't have worked this year for sure. When we finally opened them for the birthday, I was speechless. I bought them through the website, I have never been in their store or ever held a violin in my hands. They are so perfectly made, such a sound comes out of them that we and all our friends here who had the opportunity to see them, were very pleasantly surprised. I bought a gusle quite by accident, which can not only be used as an instrument, but also a beautiful decoration in our living room. I am quite sure that they will be passed on to the next generations with joy and as a great honor. Thank you for that. [Note: google translate]"

Get to know our repair process 😊

Yes, we do. After assessing the condition of the gusle and determining if they can be repaired, we provide the owner with a deadline for when the repairs would be completed.

Due to the complexity of transporting old gusle (and the responsibility we take on), we have organized repair services into packages, and that is the only way you can use them.

Of course. In that case, we will replace the strings on the gusle and you can choose a new gusle bow on the page https://gusle.me/en/catalog/gusle-bow. We will try to match the color of the bow to the color of your gusle.

As part of gusle repairs, we also offer you the replacement of certain parts of the gusle, such as bridges.

We give a deadline of 2 to 3 weeks after taking over the gusle. In this way, we ensure the time necessary for your gusle to be safely transported to our workshop and back.

We use goat skin to replace the leather, nylon for the strings on the gusle, and horse hair on the gusle bow.
