Here are some pics of several new violins delivered this year . All of Sitka Spruce and one piece Big Leaf Maple back and sides. This combination is giving consistently great results with a sweet and full tone.
The first was for Judith Bichai from Montreal. The requested “Daisy” peghead was an interesting twist on a standard scroll.
Another was for Shawn Bailey, a great nashville musician who wanted a tribute to his father who recently retired from the fire department.
And finally, a 5 string mezzo violin was recently completed for Bruce Young. A great sounding instrument. I really like this larger size for the 5 and 6 string instruments.
