Hand crafted in Somerset, England
Graham Vincent Violins are entirely hand made by me (Graham Vincent) in the village of Norton Sub Hamdon in Somerset, UK.
I like individuality and variation in my work and the best example of this is that I never use templates for arching – the shaping of the front and back is done by eye which means that your violin will have minor differences from any other violin out there!
My violins are not copies of any individual violin or maker. I make violins to my own pattern and I’m impressed and influenced by some of the splendid and rather individual C18th English makers – who were, in turn, most influenced by Amati.
