The Potter Violin Company

For the past couple of years, my son has been renting a cello from this violin shop in Bethesda, Maryland. There's a wonderfully ramshackle, Old World feel to the place, and when we were given a Knight training assignment to create an audio slide show, Potter's seemed like just the spot. Thanks to proprietor Dalton Potter and his staff for letting me look and listen behind the scenes. (Note: an earlier iteration of this slideshow, sans audio, and with a few different pictures, can be seen here.)
