Each instrument features the highest quality materials available and is built to the same high level of craftsmanship. Ebony is the standard timber for all parts with the exception of the mainstock and bellow sides which are either cherry or black walnut. Optional timbers are available on request.
Brass is standard for all metal parts, and all sets are available with nickel plating as an option. Please inquire about the current cost of nickel plating. All keywork is done completely by hand and is sprung with commercially available springs.
