Avalon Studio of Guy and Julia Cole
Violins and violas from the Avalon Studio.
The Coles bring a wealth of experience
to their craft, having trained at the Violin Making School of
America and worked at a number of the leading shops in the New
York City area. Guy is a member of the prestigious Federation
of American Violin and Bow Makers.
Today, at their own shop, they produce
a number of models—from student to professional. The
Coles use superior tonewood and employ personally trained
staff to begin each instrument. As master makers, they complete
the acoustically critical operations—the arches, tuning
the tops and backs, varnishing, and final setup.
The results of their efforts are beautifully antiqued
instruments that are powerful and responsive, with a focused, yet
complex tone...at a reasonable price.
instruments are now available.
