David Van Zandt

Seattle violin maker David T. Van Zandt came to violin making through an early interest in music. He is a 1983 graduate of the Violin School of America in Salt Lake City and an alumnus of the New York workshop of William L. Monical and Son. Devoting the past 3 decades to making new violins and violas, Mr. Van Zandt has an aesthetic unmistakably contemporary. His work displays a warm and multidimensional character while still adhering to traditional methods, materials and forms of the classical masters.

David’s other interests include pinhole-on-film and digital fine art photography. His heartfelt thanks goes to all the violin makers, both living and past, who have taught and inspired him throughout his career… and continue to do so.
