Harpsichord maker established in the heart of Jura since 1994, I select the best logs from this region renowned for its tonewoods.
My passion for early music dates back to my youth; my first instrument was a guitar and then I quickly moved on to the lute, the first period instrument I made. I began my career as a cabinet maker, and after many years of experience, I naturally turned to the profession of harpsichord maker.
I work alone and take the greatest care in making each part of your instrument. Manuals, jacks… I make each piece in my workshop.
I take the inspiration for my harpsichords from historical models, constantly looking to enhance the sound, ensure the stability, and find the perfect voicing. They are not exact copies, but I draw my inspiration from my predecessors using traditional tried and tested techniques along with my own.
