The Beginnings

Admira started back in 1932 when the German owner moved to Zarautz, Spain. The owner Enrique Fritsch started the company five years after the Spanish civil war in 1944. He started out making musical instruments and children’s toys of wood or raw materials.

As the market began to change its demands, Enrique adapted to it and changed the direction of the company towards classical guitars and other musical instruments. With the knowledge of traditional Spanish violin making, he was able to create a soulful guitar.

The company has been passed down through family and as of today is ran by Enrique’s grandchildren after his passing in the early 1980s. The main manufacturers are still located in Zarautz where they were founded.
