Nicholas Acons

Having been fascinated by the violin from an early age, Nicholas trained as a classical violinist and worked for 15 or so years as a violinist, string arranger and folk fiddle player before turning his hand (and by now his well tuned ear) to luthierie.

Nicholas graduated from Newark School of Violin Making in June 2009 and now works from his home workshop in Hereford where focusing foremost on tone and playability he creates new violins and violas in the manner of the classical Italian masters of Brescia, Cremona, Milan and Venice.
