VIOLA, AND CELLO MAKING:
Usually on commission. Sometimes there are a few uncommissioned
instruments available for trial and immediate purchase. Please inquire.
A VIOLA DA GAMBA?
Just ask. I am a capable and experienced gamba maker. Perhaps
we can find a style and model that fits your needs.
Sometimes people have good violins they wish to convert
from modern to baroque specifications for playing early music. I cater
the degree of conversion to your wishes - from simple bridges, tail pieces
and strings to more complete neck grafts, fingerboards, bass bars etc.
Please call for discussion and prices.
You're the boss.
Need an obscure instrument like a lirone? Looking for a five string violin?
Exotic wood selection? Fancy purfling or carving? A copy of a certain
instrument? I'll gladly do research and make one of a kind projects. Get
that special request you've been thinking about.
On occasion I accept repair work. I do gamba repair as
well as violin-type projects. Large or small, I'll consider the situation.
Need a baroque bridge blank? A replacement gamba peg? A
wider tailpiece for baroque playing? I make much of my own set up and
can do small piecework to fit your needs. Please call for estimates and
