THE CARLEEN HUTCHINS METHOD
Carleen Hutchins’s greatest innovation, taught to me 1 on 1 by her, is a technique known as free-plate tuning.
When not attached to a violin, the top and back are called free plates. Her technique allows me a precise way to refine these plates before a violin is assembled.
VIOLIN OR FIDDLE?
Violin and fiddle are one in the same instrument. The designation depends on the musician’s playing style and the music arrangement that they’ve selected. The fiddle played in a bluegrass band would be considered a violin when played in a classical symphony.
I invite you to view a sampling of my hand-crafted works of art.
I am happy to work with you individually to design a violin that is of the highest quality and to your unique specifications.
Or, you are welcome to choose from a past design that appeals to you.
