Handmade Violins & Guitars

Barry Dudley, violin maker and guitar maker. I use the finest materials from all around the world. Each instrument is made in my small one man shop using a blend of old world traditions and modern technology. The "art" of hand building stringed instruments is called “Lutherie”, A stringed instrument maker is called a ”Luthier”.

My instruments are made with the professional musician and advanced students in mind. They are being played by professional musicians in America and Europe as well as students that are seeking instrument majors in some of the finest music schools in America.
