I make a variety of sizes of viola ,as well as violins and an occasional cello.

Over the last twenty years I have come to specialise in small violas, though I also make instruments of just over 16 inches. My violas are played by keen amateurs and professional musicians, in leading orchestras and chamber groups.

I am an independent Viola maker based in the East Midlands.

My passion is to make high quality stringed instruments entirely hand crafted in the Italian tradition.

I specialise in the making of bespoke violas with exceptional tonal qualities at reasonable prices.
