My passion for experimenting with different species of wood keeps me on my toes during instrument making. The more instruments I build, the more I find that there are numerous alternative species of wood that can be used to make great sounding acoustic instruments. I have successfully built instruments using woods like Mango, Jackfruit, Tamarind, Padauk and Indian cedar. I will upload video clips of each of these instruments being played, wherever possible.
I believe that the eternal quest for the ideal tone leads to an interesting debate with many, many points of view. However, I also believe that the builder contributes much more to the tone of an instrument than any piece of fancy Rosewood! It is this belief that has me obsessing with perfecting the art and craft of Lutherie.
I like involving my clients in the design process, and spend a fair amount of time honing in on their exact requirement before commencing a build. Hence no two instruments come out looking or sounding the same.
