Workshop - Repairs
A small number of the most common accessories and strings are kept in stock, however if you need anything specific it is easier if you source this yourself.
Workshop - Making
Making Violins is also a large part of what goes on in the workshop. Common outlines I copy are from Stradivarius and Guarneri del Gesu with modern thicknessing profiles.
Trial periods of 2-4 weeks are standard times however I understand longer is needed sometimes and granted if need be.
As well as trying the violins I have in the workshop I also accept commissions and this can be discussed in person to meet your specific requirements.
Prices range from £6000- £8000
