"I just had a new playmate arrive, a small four course medieval lute, based loosely on one in a medieval English textile, dated to around 1300. The lute was made by Jo Dusepo, I commissioned it only a few weeks ago and so Jo made it really quickly for me. It's a sweet little thing, Jo makes nice instruments, they are well made, from good quality wood, so if you want to commission something she's your girl."

"I got a small egg-shaped kobza from Jo and her creativity shows in the design. She brings her own artistic vision into building string instruments of all kinds and they all sound fantastic. She also builds traditional string instruments and is very enthusiastic and passionate about her craft."

"I've had the chance to play a few Dusepo instruments, I've always been impressed by the quality of their sound and the finish. Can't wait to get to play my new Dusepo renaissance guitar!"

"So a few months ago my hubby decided he would like to learn to play the ukulele, he's already more than competent on the guitar and he had his birthday coming up so I decided I would get him something special. I got in touch with an old friend of mine Jo Dusepo who I know is an expert at playing, fixing and making the most extraordinary stringed instruments i've ever seen. I filled Jo in on what I was wanting, sent her my deposit and within the rather tight deadline I gave her she managed to create a stunning custom designed ukulele."
