The Macica Workshop

Each Macica Mandolin and Macica Violin is of the highest caliber and workmanship. Using only the finest quality seasoned European and Adirondack solid spruce and maple, they are carefully hand-carved, shaped and graduated to exacting specifications by skilled, experienced and meticulous craftsmanship. All of my instruments are master-craft one-of-a-kind instruments from the sole maker.

A good maker is one who can not only make an instrument look good but sound great as well. The key to making a good sounding instrument is keeping the wood where it needs to be and lessening it where it does not need to be; knowing the relationship of weight, density, and mass constantly playing off each other. I consider myself somewhat of an acoustician, in the sense that I can produce the individual sound and play-ability that each musician needs. Therefore, I can create a mandolin or violin of any model that is conducive to your exact playing style and specifications; one that will be a pleasure for you to play.
