Why Extraordinary Instruments?
Some instruments produce sound with amazing sustain, power, attack, clarity, sweetness, light and dark tones, have stunning visuals, are rare or unique. Such instruments are a source of great joy to players and can make the audience feel that they are part of something significant and special; they are extraordinary. A maker must spend years to master all the techniques and skills necessary to produce a high quality instrument. But to create an extraordinary instrument, he needs to aim so high that it becomes an exceedingly demanding, and noble, effort.
