English maker Anthony Perry has made over 80 violins and violas in a career spanning more than 40 years.  He specialises in making full-size, but slightly smaller-proportioned, instruments (in terms of body and/or stop length), making them easier to play but losing none of the tonal quality of larger full-size instruments. The sound quality and responsiveness of his instruments is well-received by the professional players who work at Moseley Violins.
