Violinmaker - Baroque instuments

Instrument making

The instruments I make are all inspired by the great Italian masters of the 17th and 18th centuries (Nicolo Amati, Francesco Ruggeri ...), in order to be as close as possible to the aesthetics of the first violins.
My years of experience in restoration have given me to see some of the finest instruments, allowing me to apply to my own realizations the best manufacturing processes.

Restoration and conversion

All instruments may suffer degradation in their lives. The work of the restorer is to render to the violin its physical integrity while respecting its original state and not denaturing its sonority.
I can also convert your old instrument into its original state.

Sound adjustment

All the instruments evolve in the face of time and climate. Regular monitoring is therefore important. For me, the setting is above all a dialogue with the musician. I always try to adapt to the needs or demands of each one.
