Horst 4/4 Violin Outfit
“It is said that music comes from the heart; so must the instrument that makes the music be an inspiration for the soul. The string instruments that we craft from these beautiful woods take on a life of their own, an extension of life after life. Each instrument that we create is an expression of that spirit. These fine instruments simply await your touch to reawaken to life once again.” Jacob Horst 4/1/91
