Unique instruments, hand made in Portland, OR.

Based in Portland, Oregon, we have a small shop where we hand craft finely finished instruments, upcycled folk instruments, and experimental noise makers.

 

Using quality parts, woods, and recycled materials depending on the instrument. Designs ranging from variations on traditional styles to completely original designs, we strive to make instruments that play good, look stunning, and will last for generations.
