Darby Violins
Handmade violins, violas and cellos.


I provide fine built, handmade violin, viola and the occasional cello to serious musicians at an affordable price.

Building is my passion, and I have devoted the past eight years to learning how to produce something artistically and acoustically superior, for local musicians.

Because I build using almost all non powered hand tools, much in the same way violins were built 300 years ago, I only produce a few a year.

Call or email if you would like to try an instrument, as I often find homes for my new creations quickly and usually don’t have an instrument in stock. I can then keep you on a list when a new production if finished.
