Dr. Robert (Bob) Hoffman and I have been working together for the past year or two on violin acoustics. Bob is an inventor, he's also been developing a computer program to help us analyze violin spectra. Bob and I designed and built two experimental balsa wood violins.
This is a screen shot of an early version of the program that Bob is developing. The latest version has some really impressive analytical features.
In the shop
The purpose of this page is to entertain, educate, and inform you of events, instruments, and people currently involved in my workshop/studio. First and foremost, a violin shop is about ... violins. So, I will highlight here some instruments currently available at my shop, with a short description, perhaps some history or other points of interest. I'll also announce newly made instruments as they are completed.
