Integrity and honesty are key to my work - each of my instruments is made entirely by hand to the very highest standards of craftsmanship from beginning to end, I don't use pre-fabricated necks or machine made instruments 'in the white' bought in wholesale.
Only the finest alpine tone woods and oil varnishes are used in and on my instruments.
The initial setup consists of either Pirastro Obligato strings or Thomastik Infeld Dominant strings.
Also, by demand, I now use precision made ultra light Wittner tailpieces with 4 integrated fine tuners.
I source my wood from Le Bois de Lutherie and ALPENTONHOLZ PAHLER, both regarded as the finest suppliers of tonewood in the world.
The front and back of each instrument is carefully tuned according to the size of the instrument (modes 2 and 5). This allows the resonances of the instrument to be harmonised which in turn maximises the sound quality in terms of projection and clarity.
