Without exception, music has been a defining and important aspect of every civilization and culture. As far back as recorded history--and undeniably before-- instrument-making craftsmen have been held in high regard within their society. This remains true today. Even in view of today's technology, the skills, quality, and personal touch of hand-made instrument makers are highly valued.
