Have a look in the gallery to see what instruments are in the current
inventory. These may be at my shop or being shown by a dealer in Atlanta,
New York, Chicago, or Amhurst, Ma.
Call to find out the most convenient way you can try out a Foster
instrument.

If you have a specific instrument you would like used as a pattern, or
copied, call and let's talk about it.

For violins I have used several of the Stradivarius instruments for
patterns, as well as those of Guarnarius del Gesu and Stainer.

For violas I have made instruments from 15-1/2" to 17-1/2" using the violas
of Gaspar da Salo, Maggini, the Amatis, and Stradivarius. I am also using
the viola d'amore as a body pattern for violas of all sizes.

I have used the cellos of Stradivarius, Goffriller, and Montagnana as models
for my instruments.

I have made nearly a hundred viols da gamba and still make them on
order. I make viols, in the style of Richard Meares, Barak Norman, and Claude
Pierrray, in all three sizes.

Please contact me for prices. Thank you.
