What people have to say about Peter Cox instruments:

"Peters instruments are probably the best value for money to be had. His work has evolved over the last few years. He uses unique designs and no two are quite alike.  The natural beauty of the woods is used in a quietly understated manner and the tone and projection of all his work is remarkable." - Brad McEwen
