LUTHIER, J. LUKE HEATON
Luke trained at Trees Breath Violin Making School in Mt. Pleasant, Utah under the exacting tutelage of master luthier, Paul Heart. After completing his training he moved back to his home town in Cedar City, Utah and opened a stringed instrument and sales business.
Luke started playing the contrabass in his youth and through this discovered his love of creating and restoring instruments.
From hand picking the wood the instruments are made from, to the finished product, Luke takes great care in ensuring the instruments he creates are something he would want to play himself.
