Description

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.

In Focus

£40.00 Sold by: The Strad Shop

For a limited time only, The Strad is issuing the first in the In Focus series with a beautiful, new limited edition cover.

This collection of articles from The Strad’s long-running In Focus series brings together more than 80 fascinating stringed instruments, with commentaries by some of today’s top instrument experts.

Makers include Antonio Stradivari, Guarneri ‘del Gesù’ and G.B. Guadagnini, but also lesser-known masters such as Paul Knorr, Dante Baldoni, Charles Nicolas Altermatt and many others. This makes it an essential resource for anyone seeking to extend their lutherie knowledge into areas and makers whose work is more rare, and a significant addition to the lutherie literature.

In Focus features exceptional high-quality photographs for every featured instrument – front, back and scroll – this book will provide inspiration for today’s makers and anyone who enjoys the beauty and variety of stringed instruments.
