Four new hardangers

We have taken delivery of four new high quality handmade hardanger violins. These are commissioned by us to our own design.

Two have been sold already to waiting custmoers but there are two available for sale now. They are both set up with our finetuning tailpieces. One of these has violin F holes which we have found are preferred by some preferred by some players. However, its thicknessing is authentic hardanger giving it the disctinctive hardanger ring. The other has traditional hardanger F holes.

These have been made by master luthiers in Europe and are made out of finest Carpathian tonewood timber.

Finetuning tailpiece for hardanger

We have been asked to supply our revolutionary tailpieces separately. These make tuning sypathetic strings much easier to do. We were recently commissoined to make one for a viola d’amore. This was very successful. If you are interested in these please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Our three hardangers have all sold quickly. We have had a great interest and fantastic feedback on instruments. We will be commissioning some more new hardanger violins soon. So visit us often to be the first to view these. Alternatively contact us now to register your interest and to discuss your requirements. Our instruments can be commissioned if you are looking for something more specialised or personal.

There has also been great interest in our revolutionary tailpiece which takes away the hassle of tuning all the smpathetic strings with an elegant fine tuning system. Vist our shop to check out the quality of our instruments.
