About Me

British Violin Making Association MemberMy name is Graham Welsh. Born in Edinburgh in 1958, I moved to Ayrshire in 1972 to continue my education at Belmont Academy. A few years later I started work as a wood machinist in Prestwick. While I was there I developed a love of wood-crafting which was to stay with me.

Through my family's interest in music, more importantly playing classical stringed instruments, I gradually learned about the general set up and characteristics of the modern classical instrument. My passion for the violin had begun. Subsequently, I decided to hone my woodworking skills and increase my knowledge by studying for an HNC in Stringed Instrument Technology at Anniesland College, Glasgow.

Since graduating, I have sought to meet as many violin players from all over the world, as well as collectors, restorers and people generally interested in the violin family of instruments. I enjoy and encourage the sharing of my knowledge and experiences, ensuring that future generations benefit from this. I have a hands on and very open approach to repairing, restoring and setting up of instruments. I find this communicative aspect of my work very rewarding. I always guarantee a high quality of produce and service and hope to extend this friendly and open approach to everyone.

With over 20 years experience in the violin trade; I've very much enjoyed working with beginners, students and professional players alike.
