My mission is to present the emotion, poetry & heart of the violin alone.

About the instrument

I play exclusively on the Jan B. Špidlen Op. 77 violin, a modern instrument inspired by the ‘Plowden’ 1735 Guarneri, del Gesù.

Along with my fiddle, is my silver-mounted bow by David Samuels, which was made the exact same year as my fiddle (2011). My practice bow is a silver-mounted tortoise-shell Hill bow made by William Charles Retford in the early 20th century.

My general setup can be read about here.
