Lyle Reedy : Reedy Violins
Specialty: I make full size violins, some in my own style and some Stradivari copies. My first goal is good sound, with appearance important but secondary. Since each instrument, no matter how carefully constructed, has a slightly different sound, it is important for the potential buyer to try out any and all instruments of interest. I recommend that the customer contact me and arrange to visit in order to properly evaluate the available instruments and either make a choice or reject all of them. I also do limited repair work on instruments of the violin family and make custom-designed chin rests.
