Instrument making

Which musician hasn’t dreamt of possessing an instrument specially made for him/her? And who hasn’t dreamt of a violin made by an instrument maker who is dedicated to finding the closest link between the artist’s inner sensitivity and the violin’s tone?

Each instrument, violin, alto/viola, cello, viola da gamba which is built in the workshop is an original piece. Each instrument is crafted according to the most exacting techniques while respecting traditional techniques.

« Each violin or viola has its own character and leaves an imprint on the player just as any companion will affect the temperament, behavior and the way of thinking of his or her partner. After all, when several hours or more each day are spent with a particular object of beauty on which one’s whole existence depends, there cannot but be a deep attachement, a
sensitivity, a rapport, a feeling of oneness. »
