Colin Adamson - Violin Maker

January 2018 update!

A New Year begins and it’s already shaping up to be a busy year.  I’ve got two Guarneri violins based on 1730 Kreisler well on the way.  There seems to be a run of Guarneri orders at the moment which is fantastic, hoping to make a Strad violin in the near future.

I’ve been reading up recently on GB Rogeri and although I haven’t had an order for that particular model yet, I would love the challenge of making one.  I find his work very inspiring.

I’ll be at the BVMA in London on the 4th February,  the makers day takes place at Kings Place, 19 York Way, London, NI 9AG.  I’ll have with me two Guarneri violins, one early period and one late period copy.  Please come along and try them if you are in the area.

Still enjoying my new home in North Berwick, East Lothian.  Lots of dog walking on the beach and looking forward to the warmer weather!

Here’s to a healthy and happy 2018 for eve
