You have a vision of the perfect violin. Perhaps it’s the memory of a great instrument you once held or haunting notes from a recording heard long ago. Often it includes a feeling for sound or a yearning to express all that you love in music.
When sharing such impressions with your violinmaker, you hope for understanding, a sense that someone else could comprehend something so personal, or better yet, might share a deep familiarity with the experience you are describing. You want to hear about the rare woods, forms and models that could bring your vision into focus and perhaps even to come away with a practical plan for making your vision a reality.
With the renaissance in concert violin making taking place in the world today, such an opportunity is becoming more and more available to you, and it’s an every day experience at the violin making studios of Gregg T. Alf. Sharing your love of music, I’ve spent over thirty years working with the fine Strads and Guarneris of classic Italian stringed instruments and serving the artists that own them.
Do you have a vision for your perfect violin…even the beginnings of one? At Alf Studios we create concert masterpieces from raw wood and the dreams of those who sponsor us. Tell me about it!
