About David BurhamI am a violinist and violist, and have performed for 33 years. I currently perform with the Eugene Symphony, and have played in the Oregon Mozart Players, The Eugene Ballet and Opera Orchestras and The Pfaff Ensemble (a baroque quartet). I have studied violin with Sherry Kloss, an associate of Jascha Heifetz. I also currently play with my acoustic rock band The Sugar Beets, voted Eugene's Best Band in 1999, 2000 and 2001. I have, over the last 20 years, played in a number of alternative, original-music groups and am fluent in the Jazz, Blues, Rock, Country, Celtic, Avant Garde and World Music genres.
My interest in making instruments began from a desire to re-create a baroque-era violin. Desire to learn and a love of working with wood, in combination with years of playing experience in symphonies, alternative settings and clubs encouraged me to design an instrument that is comfortable to play, with a sleek yet simple design and, most importantly, made to order by and for the artist - an instrument that is handmade and exquisite.
