Crafted In My Hands
To Sing In Yours
Gregory J. Eckes
Making and repairing violin family instruments in the Visalia, CA area since 1977, I started my formal studies in 1980 with Lewis Main Jr. and Senior in Long Beach California. As a prerequisite to accepting me as a student, I had to show them my first violin.
Custom Violins & Violas
I make custom violins and violas in the style of the Italian masters.
My instruments are one of kind.
They are made to exacting specifications that are considered to be standard in the profession.
