Death of a respected violin maker

The family have announced the death of Neil Kristof Ertz, the Edinburgh violin maker. He was 50 years old.

It is with profound sadness that we must share the news of Neil’s passing today, Wednesday 5th October. Neil suffered from a ruptured aneurysm on Monday and had been in hospital on life support since then. He left us today peacefully, surrounded by his family.

  • We had been working closely together on a new project to enhance learning, inspire new makers and offer opportunity to talented students as well as providing for our children. I can’t quite believe the two instruments you made are now with me and you are no longer with us! What I would give to turn this about and alter the present day. My great friend and lifelong companion. Sleep well.
