As an instrument maker, I know that musicians are looking for particular qualities
in an instrument. Beyond the fundamental attributes which show that an instrument
works properly and is comfortable to play, the instrument needs to allow a musician
to express and develop the type of sound they want to make. Part of an instrument’s
sound is dependent on technical aspects such as the set up, choice of wood etc.,
but of much greater importance is the type of sound each instrument maker produces
in their instruments.
