Description: Christopher Dungey is a violin maker specializing in the new making of cellos. He graduated from The Newark School of Violin Making in England with 'Distinction' in 1982. After returning to the states he worked in Los Angeles for Hans Weisshaar and Thomas Metzler learning the fine art of restoration. Chris has a degree in double bass performance from the University of Oregon. His teacher was Robert Hladky who taught both the cello and bass students. It is from those years of cello exposure that Chris Dungey brings a unique understanding of the cello sound to his cello making today. He has been cutting and collecting cello wood since his student days in England. This unusual position of acquiring his raw materials has helped him to have a better understanding of how to utilize the wood for each new cello to its fullest potential.
