Douglas Cox builds violins, violas and cellos in a wide range of models and styles to meet the unique requirements of each player. His standard models include the classics of Stradivari and Guarneri as well as many interesting models of Gasparo da Salò, Storioni, Guadagnini, Stainer, Amati, and Montagnana.
Most of the wood used is fine maple and spruce from the mountains of the Eastern American forest, some from the hills immediately surrounding his studio. Doug has been cutting, aging, and using his own wood since 1978, and his work has evolved over the years to make best use of its fine tonal qualities.
A good selection of violins and violas is available at Doug's studio in West Brattleboro, Vermont and at fine dealers around the country.
