Sophia's Strings

The amount of time to make an instrument is dependent upon a number of factors; the size, the type and the makers speed. To craft a standard modern 14” violin takes approximately 120 – 150 hours. The viola is of similar time as the violin, but the upper end of that time. A violoncello is approximately 300 hours and a double bass is approximately 550 hours, but that is very much dependent upon the style, which can vary widely.
