Ever since its beginnings in 2006, Trade Secrets has been The Strad’s most popular section for instrument makers. Luthiers from all over the world have contributed their own methods for any and every part of the making process, from varnish making to edgework, purfling, repair and restoration, set-up, and making tools. This collection of Trade Secrets articles from The Strad’s archives is an essential addition to any instrument maker’s library. Contributors include John Dilworth, Joseph Curtin, Jan Špidlen and Roger Rose, and the book makes an invaluable resource in combination with The Best of Trade Secrets 2, 3, 4 & 5.
