What People Say
Todd has worked on my cello twice in the last 5+ years – with great improvements in the quality of the tone it produces each time. I find him to be extremely knowledgeable, patient, prompt in completing the work, and very fair in his charges. I highly recommend him!!
I am a local violinist and violin teacher for over 20 years now. Countless times I’ve referred my students to Todd for help with their instruments, as well as entrusting my own violin to Todd for attention and care. Todd is a knowledgeable, experienced and skilled luthier and handcrafts gorgeous stringed instruments. I highly recommend Todd and encourage you to contact him without hesitation if you’re considering having a violin custom-made or need help with your own instrument.
