How to order

Each commissioned instrument that I build is customized through collaboration. Each aspect of the instrument is tailored to your wants and needs, which is honestly the most enjoyable aspect of creating a custom instrument.

To begin the process, I prefer that you contact me through the form below, but you can also contact me by phone (605-838-5447) for an initial consultation about your instrument. I will then send you a complete order form, which includes some of the options available for a custom J. Rieck instrument.
