The workshop

Since 1909, our workshop is devoted to cultivate and improve the tradition of excellence in the domain of reparing, high quality restoration and sound adjustment.

In contact with the most demanding artists and the most prestigious instruments, our team of talented luthiers has gathered a rich experience that is daily at the disposal of all the musicians (amateurs and professionnals) to take the very best care of their instruments.

We are very proud of the high quality reputation of our workshop that has continued over one century and which is a guarantee for each musician of a personnal service which will always bring entire satisfaction.

We also offer a large range of accessories for the sting quartet instruments (strings, cases, rosin etc…)
