All instruments are individually made by Ross Stuart in his workshop on Amherst Island, Ontario, Canada. As such, no two instruments are exactly alike either in sound or look. The instruments that are pictured and demonstrated here are long sold and are here for illustrative purposes only. However, the design elements and quality of the instruments are the same: what you see here is what you will get! Only not exactly!

All instruments are made to be played - by people who like to play.
