Commissioning an Instrument

With a waiting list that has at times extended to two years, 90% of my sales have been on a commission basis. The process is as follows:

It is in my interest to have my clients state their thoughts clearly and honestly, so I can serve them best. I DO NOT want my instrument in the hands of an unsatisfied customer. If there is concern, I will remedy the situation immediately. With a purchase of one of my instruments, I insist my client has at least four seasonal visits, all of which are free of charge. If visits to my studio are not possible for clients abroad, I encourage these seasonal visits to a recommended and reputable maker/violin shop. All visits for sound adjustments, cleanings, and gluing of seams are also free of charge, on a lifetime basis. As stated previously, I wish my clients to be fully looked after, and my instruments kept in peak performance condition. This philosophy has carried over from my many years as a high-level player.
