What our clients say

Artisan Horns customised Holton 178

“I was looking for a horn that might have a similar feel to an old model Yamaha 668 that I used to own.  After a recommendation to contact Artisan Horns Armen explained his approach to rejuvenating horns. I tried a number of horns but finally settled on a Holton.  Loving this horn.  It has great intonation right across the range, and an even better sound after some work to slightly thin out the bell.  Super also to be shown around the workshop areas where Armen works his magic.  A really great service, both in buying the Holton and selling my old horn – thanks.”

“I am ecstatic to review the shoulder rests made by Armen Boldy, because his creations are unique products on the market today. The shoulder rest is all at once comfortable, sturdy, wholly reliable and affordable. Never before have I found such a wonderful violin accessory and what’s more, it can also be made to order for your specific size instrument, preferred height band style. Where other shoulder rests fall off, are not comfy or simply don’t work; this one succeeds every time. I cannot recommend this highly enough!”

I’m very happy with my Yamaha 663 and with the unique customisation and attention to detail provided by Artisan Horns. Having taken my time to research and try out a wide selection of horns, I’m confident it’s the right one for me and I’m glad I have given an older horn a new lease of life.
