The following instruments are currently available for sale. Instruments can be tried out at my workshop, and in due course I plan to set up a system for short term trial periods / instrument rentals.
All instruments are set up within standard parameters to provide a consistent sound and feel, however many adjustments can be made at the time of purchase to suit the player’s requirements. Smaller instruments are commonly supplied with a case; I do not always keep a stock of cases for larger instruments, however I can easily order one upon request.
Please Contact me to enquire about prices and arranging a viewing.
