“Although I trained in Mirecourt in the French tradition of making, I've been using the classical Italian technique of making since 1992. Rather than copying the instruments of the old Italian masters, I've focussed on understanding the process that led to these instruments, assuming that each technique implies a final result, both in tone and aesthetics. My aim is to make instruments which, without being copies, have the sound and feel of 18th century Italian instruments.” S. Seixas.
Sebastian's much-loved instruments are played around the world by many professional musicians and so a visit to Cardiff Violins to try one first-hand is a must!
