To Order an Instrument

Contact me for the current lead time. This can be between 1-6 months typically.

Prices are in Canadian dollars. Any Canadian commissions will also pay 5% GST.

All commissions require a minimum 1/3 full price deposit, which is non-refundable. All payments in foreign currencies will be converted to CDN and applied to the full price. If 1/2 down or full payment is more appropriate, that is fine, the 1/3 deposit still stands as non-refundable. Once the project is underway a next payment is requested. Full price including shipping must be received before your instrument is sent out.

Alternately, after receiving the down payment you can also try monthly payments or whatever number of payments works for you. Order upgrades and changes can be applied after a deposit is given and before comission is started.

Payment address is:

Lawrence Nyberg
5280 Reicken road
Hornby Island, B.C.
V0R 1Z0

Unless a commission is personally picked up by my customer I ship via UPS Air in a double corrugated container, with the instrument in it's case, and surrounded by packing peanuts or bubblewrap. All shipments are insured and shipped to your door.

I use UPS for North America and for Europe as my default shipping agents unless specified. In Canada I can also use Canada Post. The shipping costs are above the commission cost and vary in price depending on location.


I warranty all my instruments for the lifetime of the original purchaser. This plan includes any defect in workmanship and doesn't include misuse.

Please contact me by email to discuss your commission. Or call me on my North American toll-free number 1-888-335-0487 or direct at (250) 335-0487.

Looking forward to talking with you about building you a spectacular instrument!

Lawrence Nyberg
