I started making replicas of historical
bassoons in 1984 and modern bocals in 1993. For decades
based on the Lower East Side of New York, I relocated in
2014 near the shores of the Bagaduce in rural Maine.
The following pages contain both
information on current models as well as glimpses of the
work I do as performer / composer / sound installation
Instruments are all handmade to order with most
models offering a choice of wood, tuning options, and custom
requests such as silver keywork. Delivery times vary
depending on the length of my waiting list and can be
estimated when an order is placed. Please inquire about
pricing and deposits, or write for any further information.
