Hand Crafted Musical Instruments 
by Steve Schmeck

I have been building and modifying musical instruments for over 45 years (I know, that dates me) and still find great pleasure in this process. You can see photos of some of my more recent projects below.

I often have several flutes, and occasionally flute boxes, available. See the FLUTES PAGE for availability.

My stringed instruments are custom, made-to-order commissions. Please contact me with your request for a specific instrument and we can arrange delivery time. Please understand that these instruments are one-of-a-kind and may take a while to fit into our schedule and to build.     Thanks,    Steve
