I would urge you to listen to the instruments on regular speakers rather than on your phone. Please note that the sound clip can take a few seconds to load on some devices and networks.

Hello, welcome to my website. I am a contemporary violin maker and amateur violinist in Lancashire. I started making violins because of a life long obsession with the violin and its heavenly sound. Click the button above to listen to a short clip from Kreisler's Chanson Indoue, played on one of my violins by John Mills. If you would like to know more, please have a look at some of my fine sounding handmade violins on this website.
