Jeffrey S. Robinson Violin Maker
Traditional Handmade Violins With A Touch of Modern Technology
My goal is to build the best instruments possible using traditional woodworking and varnish methods while at the same time employing computer based analysis techniques to help me make decisions to improve the tone of the finished instruments. My skills and approach have evolved over the last thirty years through experience and modified by historical and scientific musical instrument research.  All of my instruments are built solely by me with a minimal use of power tools. My varnish is also made by me using materials and techniques available in the seventeenth century.  Please visit the instrument construction and acoustical analysis sections of this website to see some of the extra steps I use to make my instruments rise above the crowd.
