I am very interested in discovering, and possibly collecting, my family legacy instruments. Over time our instruments have found their way to many locations at home and abroad. Discovering other families with musical legacies of their own is also quite fascinating. I am very pleased to be a part of the string instrument and musical world.

Josephs Instrument Makers

My family instrument making began in the late 1850's with Great Grandfather Pierre Aloysius Josephs III

Most instruments were made in New York or San Francisco, and are currently being made again in Mendocino, California. I am always excited about getting in touch with my family traditions and am sincerely thankful for your help.
