Handmade Instruments by Mark Jennings

Mark's individually handmade instruments are of the highest class.  His work follows the 17th and 18th century Cremonese
traditions of Amati, Stradivari and Guarneri.  The study and analysis of these great Master's work has led Mark into
producing a quality of instrument that is played by both soloists and orchestral musicians at home and abroad.

Throughout the making process sound is paramount, working towards an excellent sonorous character, giving ease of response
and an evenness of tone.  Timber is chosen carefully for both its acoustic and physical properties, each piece of wood is
worked to achieve these sound requirements.  The model, the arching, the set-up, even the varnish all influence the final result.

Mark's instruments can be viewed and taken on approval from his own workshop.
