PhilosophyMy philosophy is to make instruments that are as individual and unique as the player.

I strive for perfection and never compromise any aspect of the making, from selecting the wood through to the ingredients of the varnish and the final set up.

With every instrument that I make, my purpose is to produce something special for my clients. I want them to feel that their instruments are just as individual as they are-instruments that will naturally meet their requirements but also match and perhaps exceed their initial expectations.

Collaboration is essential. Whenever possible I aim to establish a rapport with my clients to fully understand their style of playing and their vision of what they really want me to make.

I am able to work in any number of styles using the instruments of past masters as models and inspiration. Visit the gallery to see samples of my work.

Observing my client’s delight when they are first “introduced” to their instrument is always so rewarding, particularly after all the hours put in to crafting something that will outlive both maker and musician!
