A Traditional Maker of Violins Viola & Cellos

I am a maker of fine Violins, Violas and Cellos. My new instruments are handmade from attractive seasoned timber in my Bristol based workshop.  I make them for professional musicians, students wanting to progress further into a musical career and keen amateurs.

My influences are taken from the great historic Italian violin making families and individuals  such as Stradivari, Amati, Guarneri and Rogeri. 

I welcome customers wishing to commission a violin, viola or cello and we can discuss your requirements should I not have something suitable in stock.
