I typically have a selection of restored instruments on hand. I also have a few, new, student grade instruments in stock. I also have a selection of student grade bows, and carry a limited selection of strings and accessories. Please note that I only do local sales on instruments. I'm a firm believer that the player should try the instrument, and compare it to other instruments, at the same time, before buying. Below are a few examples.
I also have agreements and accounts set up with many distributors, and can generally get special orders in quite quickly, and I try to match or beat most other vendors..

This is a decent instrument , made in Japan during the early part of the 20th. century. I've seen a few of these, and they're all pretty nicely made. This one has a very distinctive Manchurian maple back! Very interesting, swooping vertical flames! Although this is a slightly lower grade than some of the Nippon instruments that I've worked on, it's nicely restored and set up
This is a German violin from the Markneukirchen area, from around 1900. These were mass produced instruments that as originally made , were pretty run of the mill. I did some pretty extensive work on this one to bring it up to a nice standard.
An opinion from one of the finest restorers around, says that this instrument is from the late 18th. century, from a decent shop in the Prague region. This instrument has had a lot of general restoration work done, to bring it into a nice, restored condition. Custom set up to make it a great player.
This is a brand new instrument, set up in my shop. It's a very nice quality Chinese instrument that I purchased with out anything on it, and did a custom set up. That includes pegs, strings, bridge, tailpiece, and sound post. A great buy.
