Making Instruments: Violins, Violas, Cellos

Traditional Instruments

Our traditional instruments are mostly based on models of the Cremonese masters such as Stradivari, Guarneri and Amati. We have a range of instruments available, but also are happy to undertake commissions for new instruments.

We also offer tuition in instrument making, please get in touch for further information.

Cornerless Instruments

Our three quarter and full size cornerless violins, violas and cellos are simpler to make than instruments with corners, making the cornerless instrument much more affordable than its traditional counterpart.

Cornerless instruments have a wonderfully modern appearance, are lighter and still maintain the full depth and volume of sound usually associated with a hand made instrument.

Baroque & Renaissance Instruments

We make baroque violins, viola d'amore and other renaissance instruments such as viola da Gamba (Viols).
