CRAFTED BY HAND FOR MUSIC PERFECTION - One violin takes close to 200 hours of meticulous work. The wood must be carefully bent, carved and shaved to within 0.1 mm. in thickness, a calibration that depends on state-of-the art precision instruments.

This work requires endless patience, hands that can form with surgeon-like precision, and eyes of a fine artist.

The resulting difference between a handcrafted instrument and one turned out on a factory assembly line can be seen and heard immediately, even by a non-specialist.

The hand-crafted instrument has a longer life and like a few prestigious automobiles or vintage wines, increases in value as each year passes.
