Instrument making

More than a dozen original instruments from Stradivari, Guarneri and Bergonzi passed through my hands during my years as a master violin maker in one of the most renowned violin making workshops in Paris.

It is the small details of wood working of Stradivari and his teacher Amati that makes the famous curvature architecture possible.

Beauty of sound musical energy and sound capacity are the result of a harmonious combination of form, curvature, elasticity and sound adjustment.

As a violin and viola player I have played many of the original instruments, that I offer as replicas myself. The combination of sound perception, feel of playing and craftsmanship play a key role in my work.
