Instruments: Makers | Violin Makers

David Munro makes violins and violas for professional orchestral musicians, chamber music players and soloists.

His instruments have recorded chamber music for important labels, and are played regularly in major concert halls.

He trained at the RNCM, then worked as a freelance violinist in the north west of the UK. From 1986-89 he trained at NSVM. He was invited in 1997 to work in Hampshire with his mentor Christoph Götting (formerly of J&A Beare), who remains a close colleague. Working independently from his home in Hampshire since 2001, he makes to commission a regular output of violins and violas which are faithful to the 18th century Cremonese. He is in demand for sound adjustments and setting up of fine instruments.
