Prices & Custom Orders
I feel my prices are reasonable for one-of-a-kind hand
made instruments. Also I will always give a discount
for cash or checks, since processing credit card orders costs me.
I love making unique custom instruments. I will work
with you to create exactly what you want. I do not charge
more for custom orders. To get an idea of what a custom
instrument will cost, you may download this PDF file which
is the sheet I use to determine price.
It attempts to fairly reflect the amount of work various
options take me, and the cost of materials. It won't be
exact but will give you a good ball park figure.
Some of the tropical woods have gone extremely high -- I recently saw
a set of Brazilian rosewood on sale for $2500. This is an
extremely endangered species and we should learn to get
along without using it! I try not to use endangered woods
unless the buyer insists on it.
