From The Luthier


Over the years, John Kirk has explored many patterns through his own experience and through observing instruments ranging from exceptional modern makers to the Italian greats. In terms of his celli, he has refined 3 models: Domenico Montagnana, Antonio Stradivarius, and David Tecchler each with their own visual and tonal attributes.
