'From the Bulgarian zurlas to bass drums, from the delicate lute to the high-tech Fairlight synthesiser, Australians make some of the world's finest musical instruments.
This unique book is a magnificent record of the success story of Australian instrument making.
Above all, it is the story of the people, some world famous, who dedicated years to coaxing beautiful music from raw materials of wood and metal.
It is a book for lovers of music and fine craftmanship to treasure.'
