“The Antares” 14 inch Soloist Violin
Bold, deeply Rich bass with a well Rounded Sweet Resonant treble end. Easy to play, hugely projecting, well balanced and Velvety to the touch. Made with 40 year old European Spruce and Maple from the Alps.
If you like the Guarneri violin sound, you’ll love the sound of this violin.
“The Tara” 16-3/4 inch Concert Viola
Beautifully Soothing Rich voice. Sitka Spruce, European Maple and Evah Pirazzi strings.
Violist Colin Benn encouraged me to make a quartet five years ago and this is as far as I got. I doubt I’ll ever make a cello.

My Transition Violin Photo Gallery
Transition violins shown below were some of a host of violins made during my decades long violin system’s Research and Development period.
Each contributed to and helped solve an issue, design or question. All are very fine instruments in their own right and sound very nice. Some have not the prettiest of finishes, however any orchestra player would be nicely served with any one of them. They just aren’t the “executive or soloists” quality violins that can be made using my Fabrication and Tuning systems.
These instruments were work horses and are shown for your entertainment only.
