Trial of Instruments
The best way to try out an instrument is to contact me, or Antonio Strings, and we can let you know if there is something available to try out. Generally, trial periods are for about a week, but if you require a longer time, we can discuss this and come to an arrangement.
Commission a Violin
The first step in the process is simply to contact me. We can then discuss what you are looking for in an instrument, and to decide on things such as its look – “antiqued” or “new”. Once the violin is finished, a trial period will follow, before you make the final decision. No deposit is necessary, as I believe firmly that instruments should speak for themselves, and you should only pay for an instrument when it is finished. Any adjustments you desire will be made to the set up before you take the violin away.
