Live Auction

In Support of Ukrainian Violin Maker Taras Andrash

All proceeds from this auction will go directly to Taras Andrash - the maker of this violin.

About the auction

This violin was made in 2021 by Taras Andrash and sent to us in November. Due to the war in Ukraine, the violin was stuck at the Kyiv post office for over two months before it unexpectedly arrived at our shop almost a total of four months later. This was especially surprising since the conflict has become increasingly worse.

Taras Andrash has been unable to keep working on violin making during this crisis, and since we have a history of working together, the least we can do is try to sell this violin and send 100% of the proceeds to him.

In addition to the commission-less sale, we initiated this auction to create the opportunity for our community to help this violin maker above and beyond what we would normally charge for a violin at this level.
