No violin maker that I know relishes the sales part of the job, given a choice I’d rather be at the bench, making the next instrument, the instrument which will surely answer some of the many questions that I still have about the best way to do things. However reality intrudes from time to time and I have to get out of the shop and justify myself to the world. In fact once I’m out of the door sales trips are usually fun, a break in the routine, an adventure, a chance to meet interesting people.
