Please allow me a moment of reflection as Encore passed it’s 10-year anniversary this past November. Almost as if the shop were celebrating, we’ve paired up three modern master instruments with their new owners in as many months. When we started this adventure ten years ago, I hoped we would one day have the opportunity to represent top makers with the same ethos that drives the rest of what we do. The best modern instruments are great indeed, and the opportunity to have relationships with these master makers – to call them friends – is a great honor. I look forward to pausing in another ten years to reflect…I trust it will be on good things.
