Team Built Dantzig instruments are available in three models: Tulsa (shown above), Milano, and Rialto. These instruments are built by Jol along with a small team of talented builders, artisans he has worked with for many years. The Team Built method allows us to provide serious, tuneful instrument designs at more affordable prices. A wide range of custom options are also available.
Jol has assembled a team of seasoned artisans who help bring each Dantzig instrument to life. In an atmosphere of respect, they support and push each other to do their best work. In the workshop you won’t find value-stream mapping or employee-empowerment campaigns—just old fashioned hard work and genuine camaraderie. It may not be politically correct to share a beer at the end of a long day, but it sure tastes good.
