    The Calace workshop was founded in 1825 by Nicola Calace, on the island of Procida near Naples. He started by producing guitars. When he died, the tradition was continued by his son Antonio, who started making mandolins after moving to Naples. Antonio's two sons, Nicola and Raffaele, inherited his knowledge and business when he died. The two brothers were, besides their activities as musicians, also recognized as excellent makers of the instruments of the Neapolitan mandolin family. They introduced improvements in the building techniques and modernized the Neapolitan mandolin by, among other features, enlarging its sound box and applying a fingerboard that extended over the sound hole to enlarge the range of the mandolin.  The brothers worked together making mandolins, but soon the superiority of Raffaele Calace as composer, musician and instrument-maker, caused conflict between the two. Nicola Calace emigratated to America in 1901, where under the name of Nicola Turturro he continued to build instruments. Knowledge of Raffaele's genius and talent became widespread. He composed more than 180 works for plectrum instruments, was universally acknowledged and became known as "The Paganini of the mandolin" for the vigor and expressivity of this work. He studied and improved the mandolin, achieving technically advanced instruments. He handed down his skills to his son Giuseppe Calace, who made high quality instruments. Giuseppe, in turn, handed down the secrets to his son Raffaele Jr. who, after the death of his father, has followed the family tradition since. Raffaele Calace (1863-1934)  Nicola Calace  (1859-1923)

Email, call or write me to order or discuss your needs.  You can't order from my web site--I like to discuss your order with you first.

Many people have told me how much they enjoy my bringing my ‘store’ of instruments to workshops so that they can try many different ones over the course of a few days.  This makes their decision-making process much easier. 

Obviously, when ordering by mail, I can’t send you my whole ‘store’ of instruments to try, but I do try to come as close as is reasonably possible.  All instruments can be ordered on approval.  I am happy to send out two or more instruments for you to compare.  For instance, I could send out two or three rosewood altos, or rosewood, pearwood, grenadilla and  boxwood altos for you to sample.  Then you can play them (please, no more than 15 minutes per day, just as if you were starting the breaking-in process), let your friends try or listen to them, and let a teacher try them.  This gives you some feedback on your choice, and gives you more confidence in your decision. 

I want you to be satisfied with your instrument, and feel under no obligation to buy it if you don’t like it.  A normal time for deciding is approximately one week.  I, of course, expect any returned instruments to be in like-new condition (see below).  Whether you decide to buy an instrument or not, all I ask is that you pay for shipping costs both ways.

Once you have decided on a purchase, I will bill you. 

Email, call or write me to order or discuss your needs.  You can't order from my web site--I like to discuss your order with you first.

 

I had an instrument returned that smelled of cigarette smoke.  The customer did not smoke, but a visitor did.  I haven't yet succeeded in removing the smell.  I can't sell a smoky instrument, so I do not want to send instruments on approval to households where people are allowed to smoke.  If a smoky-smelling (or mildew-smelling) instrument is returned to me, I will not accept it, and you will have bought it, since it is no longer in like-new condition.  In my experience, hardly any recorder players smoke, so this should be a rare occurrence.  So please, no smoke, mildew or lipstick, and brush your teeth before playing--all things you should do if the instrument were yours.  I hope you understand this policy.
