The Luthier Guide
A Contemporary Violin Maker Guide by MyLuthier
The Luthier Guide is the first online price reference for contemporary string instrument and bow makers. We feature makers from all over the world, from America to Europe and Asia. In each maker profile, you can find information about their up-to-date prices, as well as photos of their instruments and a biography.
It’s the easiest way to find out how much your contemporary instrument or bow is worth but is also a useful tool to find out the prices of a specific maker.
The price ranges we display reflect a number of factors. They take into account the current maker retail price, currency variations, age of the instrument as well as resale value.
As founders of MyLuthier.co, the UK’s first showroom and online platform dedicated to promoting contemporary instruments, we realised that there is not enough information online about living makers. It can be very hard gain any knowledge of who they are and what kind of work they do as well as find out where one can find their instruments.
Since starting MyLuthier, we have gained valuable insights into how this specific market works.
We created The Luthier Guide to allow musicians and collectors alike the opportunity to access information about all these makers in one convenient place.
