New Instruments

We offer a variety of instrument models inspired by the great Old World Masters of violinmaking. Jesse is skilled at creating replicas of classic models by masters Stradivari & Guarneri, and has studied the latest knowledge pertaining to advanced violin physic acoustics.  Our objective is to meet individual players' needs and tonal preferences in an instrument.

After four years of researching and testing ancient recipes, Jesse has developed a unique Baltic amber varnish that recaptures the glow achieved by Renaissance masters. Even when dry, his vibrant varnish retains its transparency and unique depth.
