About the Galleries....

These are a few of the instruments that I have photographed and in most cases have worked on. I plan on rotating the images periodically, so this is an area to check back once in awhile to see what's new.  In addition to the more common makers, I am trying to include some more obscure and less frequently documented makers that I hope you find interesting.

Authenticity...

Labels...

Color...

Please keep in mind that each computer monitor displays color differently, therefore the color you see on your screen may not be a completely accurate representation of the original instrument. Furthermore, these pictures were all taken over several years under many different circumstances. Sometimes I could take all the time I needed and other times I had five or ten minutes to get in a few good shots. Different lighting, and in some cases different cameras have been used... therefore variances will occur.
