I have moved! Please note the new address below..  a recent NY Times article, one from my new home town, and a local paper..

I have been making replicas of historical bassoons since 1984, since 1993 in the workshop on the Lower East Side of New York, where I also began making modern bocals -- and now I have relocated near the shores of the Bagaduce in rural Maine.

The following pages contain both information on current models as well as glimpses of the work I do as performer / composer / sound installation artist.

These instruments are all handmade to order with most models offering a choice of wood, various tuning options, and custom requests such as silver keywork. Delivery times vary depending on the length of my waiting list and can be estimated when an order is placed. Please inquire about pricing and deposits, or write for any further information.

In addition, I very much enjoy, and am available for, restoration work of all kinds.
