Meet Ben – one of our fantastic violin specialists. If you don’t see Ben with a violin in his hands, chances are he’s advising one of our valued customers, whether they’re testing a new instrument, or bringing a family heirloom back to life. . Music has been an instrumental part of Ben’s life, quite literally! Along with his four siblings and new bride, Lauren, you’ll often find Ben in his home studio recording everything from modern to classic melodies. . His proudest musical moment? Buying a 200 year old violin and learning to restore it himself. “Luthiery and the art of instrument making isn’t very big in Australia, and I’d like to be a part of changing that.”

The apprentice class continued their collective efforts this week in removing the bass top that had been glued together with the wrong kind of glue, (please see last week’s video too) and then learning what methods must be used to remove the top safely under those circumstances. Then they saw what was hiding beneath the broken top and were excited to see the “Frankenstein” looking repairs from the past. I am delighted to see their enthusiasm and interest in playing a part in bringing this bass back to life again! #floridaviolins #sarasota #violinshop #studio #youth #education #apprentice #luthier #class
