William Robert Scott has demonstrated great skill in his craft. He incorporates elegance and design with acoustical understanding which is evident over the past 3 decades. The consistant and numerous accolades won in international violin-making competitions bears evidence to this and if you would like an opportunity to try an instrument please give us a call or write. (Note: since winning Hors Concours status in 2006, Mr. Scott is no longer able to compete in any VSA competition.)

Hors Concours--Violin Society of America, meaning "outside the competition", no longer allowed to compete in these events. Gold Medals won at three different events are required. Last time this was accomplished by a violin maker in the US was over 10 years ago!
