Unique Bespoke Violins and Restorations

I trained at Newark School of Violin Making and graduated in 1989, I worked for several years for large violin shops in Bristol  the moved on to specialise in restorations mainly for the trade, but have been very lucky to make a few violins a year, heavily influenced by my love of early English Makers.

I also run several long term research projects, organise festivals and work as a professional musician and producer.
