Paul Collins has been making fine violins, violas and cellos since graduating from the Newark School of Violin Making in 1984 , one of the world’s most prestigious colleges of lutherie.
“I only make the finest possible instruments to the highest level both acoustically and aesthetically”.
“They are made using the same tools available to the great Cremonese violin makers. The planes, knives and gauges are similar to those used in the workshops of Stradivarius and Guarneri.
My instruments are based on the designs of the Great Italian violin makers but with my own unique style subtly incorporated”.
