For Custom instruments I have to allow extra time for research, sourcing materials, usually there is a surcharge of 25% on Custom one off models, Some instruments need to be built in stages, where wood is gradually acclimatised to become an instrument, Hollowed out lyres and Harps and also guitars for example benefit from this extra time. As of January 2017 with new CITES changes I will no longer use Rosewood, Bubinga or African Blackwood for exported instruments, I was using plantation grown Rosewood but Currently using chacate preto on fingerboards with ebony and bog oak on custom instruments.  From 2022 will focus on native timbers from well managed sources.  

Lead time from 2024 will vary rom instrument type to level of customisation,  6-18 months average,  longer for new instruments.  For Custom orders I now require a non returnable deposit of 10% to reserve a place on my order book, to cover materials. Prices are fixed at this point.  Custom orders are often built over a longer timespan than my standard instruments to allow wood to acclimatise and extra research, but I will let you know when I start construction,  we usually upload My work in progress picturesI usually upload My work in progress pictures on instagram.

The final payment plus delivery costs are always payable before delivery.  

Delivery overseas is now by federal Express, here in the UK by next day delivery, royal mail or courier.


Most of my in stock instruments are now handled through etsy payment system, for deposits and for custom orders I can do Bank Transfer payments or Paypal,  at the moment I can only accept cheques in the Uk with Pounds Sterling.  as of 2021    I can also accept Cryptocurrencies for full payment at the time of completion only,as these values fluctuate I would prefer to keep these to buy now instruments rather than long term commissions,   

Please feel free to email if you have any questions!

Workshop: Working safely at home, isolating as much as possible during Covid restrictions with some delays with supplies and some backlog to orders which I am working through,  Small items sent out by Royal mail have been taking a little longer,  instruments shipped and tracked worldwide by FedEX worldwide have been getting to customers more quickly.    

 Exotic timbers: These will be mostly phased out by end of 2023. (with a few plantation and fsc exceptions)  always Looking at sustainable projects and alternatives. Local and Urban timber. Rocklite or Torrified timber for some fingerboards, etc  Will be reducing plastic packaging where I can and use cardboard boxes and recycled materials for shipping,       

I run my business mostly online, working from family home, small workshop not open to public. 

May be able to offer in person meetings in the Future by arrangement, My workshop is being re-organised over the next year or two and hoping to build some stock for 2022 so I have examples on hand which is not the case at present.
