CURRENT LIST OF INSTRUMENT MODELS

The following is a list of the models of violins, violas, cellos and violas da gamba I currently build. This list has evolved over many years as I have experimented with what works well, looks good, and appeals to buyers. I have chosen to copy the lines of these instruments not only because they are aesthetically classical and beautiful, but also because together they comprise a rather full range of sizes and shapes. Most players can find something comfortable for them within the list. If not I am always ready to work with a client to custom build something appropriate.
