We're going wholesale

On July 22, Handcrafted will transition to a verified, wholesale industry marketplace. You'll know that all buyers and sellers are verified businesses in the string industry, and pricing won't be exposed to the general public.


Get your instruments into the hands of creative people.

Whether you make violins, guitars, mandolins, or anything else, you're proud of what you build but want to think less about how to get your work into the hands of creatives. Skip the dealers, stop thinking about logistics of payment and home trials, and spend more time doing what you love.

Find an instrument or bow that's as unique as what you'll create with it.

In a world that encourages consumption of mass-produced goods, it's easy to forget that craftspeople have been making instruments since time immemorial. Your art isn't cookie-cutter, and what you create it with shouldn't be either.

Tonal and playability characteristics

One of the worst parts about looking at instruments online is that you have absolutely no idea what they sound or play like. What good is knowing it's an "1880 Mittenwald, German Violin" when you don't know whether it's warm or metallic; thin or rich; resistant or responsive? Luthiers on Handcrafted can provide instrument characteristics to help give you confidence before you buy.
