Welcome to Etude studio, the storefront and workshop of master luthier Sheridan Driscol. Located in the heart of the Old Temple District, and part of the greater complex of the Rhydin Center for Performing Arts, this business shares space and is affiliated with the Crescendo School of Music opening in the fall of 2020.
A large selection of hand-crafted, premade instruments are available for purchase in the Etude shopfront. Master Driscol is renowned for his work with stringed instruments and some woodwinds, but more famously for his one-of-a-kind custom made pianos. Applications for personalized commission work are always accepted and open to negotiation. Inquire within!
(NPCs in order: Personal Assistant Berta Stallworth, apprentice Josue Dasilva, shop assistant Kareem Varney, and shop assistant Treena Mora. Their races are human, human, human, and half-elf. Face claims for these NPCs are Helen Mirren, Rico Rodriguez, Trevor Jackson, and Banita Sandhu.)
Most customers of the shop will be greeted by any one of Master Driscol’s apprentices and not the craftsman himself. These young aficionados are knowledgeable about the craft, how each instrument is made, and music in general. They are more than happy to help you find the guitar, violin, viola, cello, bass (and more!) that suits you and your needs. If you can’t find it at Etude already, we can make it for you!
Customers looking to have a custom piece of work commissioned will be directed to the offices of Master Driscol’s personal assistant, Berta Stallworth, who will be more than happy to discuss specifications, the expected completion schedule, and cost with you. The luthier himself is a busy man and does not often deal with customers directly, but there have been known exceptions.*
The Etude studio and workshop is open five days a week, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. Dris himself is known to be on the premises from noon until closing.
(* If you would like to have a custom piece made for your character, please do not hesitate to DM me. Otherwise, you are welcome to say that your character has purchased a standard, not personalized instrument directly from the Etude storefront at any time. These are limited to any variety of acoustic string, wind, or percussion instruments. Dris does not work with metal nor electric devices, and there are no prefabricated pianos. These are strictly commissioned work. Please be kind to the NPCs. If you have any questions, also please shoot me a message. Thank you. )
