My experience doing business with Martin has been a true pleasure throughout the process of finding a suitable viola for me. I doubt you will find a more reliable, passionate, patient and humble person in the violin trade. He has great knowledge about violin family instruments and bows, plus he is remarkable in the way he navigates the treacherous waters of the violin market. He never looses sight of what the mission is, to couple the right instrument with the right musician.
I first met Martin in London where we got acquainted over a cup of coffee. Then we went on to try violas and bows. It did not result in anything that time. A year later I saw two violas on Martin’s website that caught my attention. Martin went ahead and just sent them both to me to try at home. Such excellent service! I ended up buying a fantastic viola from him that I know will be with me for many years, if not forever.
Let Martin help you finding an instrument, you’ll be happy!
