Passion and imagination have always inspired artists and musical instruments manufacturers to create new musical forms and new sounds.
An initial profound understanding of tradition is often followed by a departure from it or even a break.
The key ingredient in the innovation process is definitely imagination. First of all, you have to imagine, then experiment constantly, being aware that you are unlikely to be understood or accepted immediately.
Along this path, more and more artists decide to customize their instrument to make it more in tune with their own way of playing and achieve a free and authentic musical expression.
