Owner, Luthier

Cellist, repair luthier, bow-maker, Linda's passion is cellos and helping musicians with their instruments. An expert at cello setup, she is sought-out by professional musicians on the West Coast. Our instruments are great because of Linda's love, care and attention to detail that goes into every one of them.
