Hinde Custom Instruments

Philosophy "Made To Be Played!"

I use the highest grades of material for the construction. I use hot hide glue for most of the construction, especially anything that is in the sound box. I prefer to use a varnish finish for several reasons. I want a thin flexible finish that can be applied easily and quickly. I use a water based varnish on most instruments for ease of application, easy clean-up, and buffs out well. And non-toxic. I also do oil based varnish with French polished top coats if desired for the traditional approach. I can do Nitrocellulose Lacquer for guitars for a tougher finish. But I also use KTM 9 or other water-based lacquers.  I have the utmost respect for the vintage construction and design from the past, but I also think the materials and technologies we have today afford even higher levels of quality. I embrace commonly accepted materials for certain instruments, but I believe there are opportunities using different woods and materials to enhance the aesthetic and tonal qualities. With current restrictions on traditional materials, we need to search for alternatives as well.
