"I hope Houston will quickly recognize what a superb luthier you are. I love your beautiful violins and had every confidence in you to rehair my bows.
Your earnestness with people should help overcome these very challenging times.

" Ben has done both repair work and bow rehairs for me in Cincinnati. All work is done to the highest standards! Honest and friendly. Highly recommended!"
"My colleagues and I love Ben's rehairs, and the new bridge he made for my violin has helped open up the sound quite a bit. He's also a great maker, and is always very professional and communicative about his approach to everything. I would recommend him without hesitation to student and professional string players of all levels who are either searching for a new instrument or needing work done on theirs."

Being a luthier, he is deeply committed to the art of Instrument making. Being a violinist, he has a keen insight into the needs of his clients. He is a pleasure to work with."
"It’s been a pleasure working with Ben Sanford! He is an excellent craftsman and a super guy. Ben has enviable qualities, some of them rarely seen in this business: He takes great joy in his work, consistently looks for creative, outside-the-box solutions for his customers’ needs, and perhaps most importantly, sets the “ethical bar” higher for himself than almost anyone I’ve encountered in my many years in music."
" I’ve trusted Ben Sanford with my bow rehairs for the last few years in Cincinnati. His quality of work and attention to detail are first class. I have always loved how my bow has played after returning from his shop. Ben's personality and passion for the work he does makes him that much better to work with. He is a master at his craft and is always willing to share his knowledge; I’ve learned so much from him. I cannot recommend Ben highly enough."
