Enjoy varnish fumes, soccer, historical research, acoustics research (have you seen the huge rack of equipment next to my bench?!). I'm always digging in auction catalogs looking at details and reading in the evenings. In between giving my hands a break i'm usually lurking around here on maestronet.
No longer doing any repairs or restoration to focus on making new instruments. I find that my true passion is for new instruments and I really enjoy pushing the edge for sound. Making a new instrument has the same thrill as picking up a golden period strad and I have decided to remain focused on this.
December of 2012 andrewkochie.com will be complete with new photos
or the amati.com profile at the bottom for available instruments
