About Us

We have been active in the city of Oxford since 1983, Dialogue with musicians and delighting in the work of the "Old Masters" inform our approach to making. The instruments illustrated here are:

  • A viola by Michael Kearns (2010), bench copy of a Carlo Ferdinando Landolfi

  • A violin by Bruno Guastalla (2011), modeled after Guarneri del Gesu, commissioned by Briony Shaw (leader of the seconds, CBSO Birmingham)
