My standard simpler Instruments that can be usually be made in less than 4-5 months are listed on etsy.com( https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Thelyreshop) When purchasing through etsy Payment in usually in advance and at the time of purchase I can give an approximate date of completion
I build these standard instruments alongside my Custom instruments often in batches of 2 or 3 to keep costs down.
For Custom instruments or for more expensive complicated instruments I have to allow extra time for research, sourcing materials. Some instruments need to be built in stages, where wood is gradually acclimatized to become an instrument, Hollowed out lyres and Harps and also guitars for example benefit from this extra time.
For Custom orders I require a deposit of 25% to reserve a place on my order book, to cover materials. Depending on the instrument and the time it takes we usually break the rest of the payment down into smaller parts, an interim payment, then the remainder of the balance on completion before delivery.
When I begin construction I
Give an approximate delivery date and will ask for 50%
balance at that time. The final remainder is always payable before
