Otis A. Tomas ~ Stringed Instruments




I treat my work as a continuous exploration and experiment. Although I have learned much in the last 30 years or more that I have been involved in this work, I only become more aware of the mystery that is so much a part of its appeal. Each instrument is unique. Every piece of wood has its own secrets, and new ideas and insights are constantly brought to light.




I build about 10 to 12 instruments a year, each for a particular customer. Rather than having standard models and pricing, I prefer to take each order individually to consider the various options of design, materials, and decorative details.  

Because I keep booked ahead with orders, waiting time for an instrument can be up to a year or more-- payment of a small deposit will reserve a place in my work schedule.
