The models I use for my instruments are personalized versions based on
historical Cremonese designs. I favor the spirit displayed in the later works
by Joseph Guarnerius "Del Gesu" (1698-1744) ,
but also acknowledge in my patterns the refined principles set forth by
Antonio Stradivari (1644-1737) .
Warm, powerful, penetrating, evenly balanced, and
fun to play are typical comments I have received.
