Owner Mark Dalzell began in the music business in 1994 and has bought, sold and fixed just about every instrument and brand there is. Starting at the age of 15, he began building violins and violas in his basement in Ottawa, Ontario, and is always looking for new challenges in instrument design and construction.
Mark has built everything from period medieval/renaissance instruments to state of the art digital and MIDI capable violins and guitars, although he is currently best known for The Destroyer, an experimental guitar/mandolin/theremin instrument built for the 2007 Jersey City Artist’s Studio Tour.
Mark has a Bachelor’s of Music in Viola from the University of Delaware with a focus in music education. He has studied and performed on everything from 15th century instruments such as vielle, cittern and shawm to Indonesian gamelan instruments, to experimental electric violins, digital trumpets, and just about every instrument in a symphony orchestra.
