David Lloyd Rivinus - Violin Maker
Updated October, 2023
For those of you who may not be familiar with my work, the 12-minute YouTube clip to the right is an excellent and succinct description of my violas and what they do for the player. Despite the filmer misspelling my name, I highly recommend it. At the time I didn't realize he was filming the clip for publication, so the narrative is totally spontaneous. Enjoy!

Dear Violinists & Violists,
After more than 40 years as a violin maker, I went into semi-retirement in 2018. I still service and repair the instruments I have made, but I am no longer making new ones. Still, the epidemic of player injuries continues unabated. For this reason, I am happy to continue acting as a broker for those of you who either wish to purchase or offer one of my ergonomic instruments for sale. Every few months I update the list of instruments being offered, and you can contact me at any time at email@example.com
