Discovery requires exploration. Drawn by the balance of artistry, affordability, lush sound, and ease of playing, professional musicians, advanced students, and dedicated amateurs have chosen my violins and violas to inspire their musical lives. From selecting the tone-wood and crafting the instrument, through making and applying the varnish and perfecting the set-up and tonality– every step is the result of my own labors driven by my obsession to create superior instruments.
I invite you to begin your exploration by browsing this site, then call or email me with your questions, inquiries of availability, or to arrange an audition or studio visit. Other players have discovered my instruments – why not join them?
