About Colin

Colin Cross graduated from the Newark School of Violin Making, with a Distinction, in 1989 and, since then, has worked extensively as a restorer, repairer and maker of fine violins.

As a maker, he specialises in violins and violas with a tonal quality as rich and individual as their texture and finish. Colin also has a nation-wide reputation for sensitive and sympathetic restoration and repair work.

Colin's reputation as a restorer of considerable skill has been well earned. Professional players, violin dealerships across the country, and other players, often bring specific projects hundreds of miles for his specialist restoration.
