Photo Workshop 032Buying an instrument

In addition to my master basses I also prepare and sell other instruments.

I have selected two types of double basses for their sound potential and structural qualities. I prepare and adjust the instruments to maximize their musicality and to offer the musician greater ease of play. I shape and dress the fingerboard and I carve my own bridge for each instrument. On the upper range of these double basses, I inlay French style tuners.

The instruments are appreciated by professors and teachers as well as musicians from both the classical and jazz world.


A wide choice of strings is available : Thomastick, Pirastro, Corelli, Jargar, Velvet …

Photo Workshop 031I have chosen to supply Carbow carbon bows for their exceptional mechanical qualities and excellent musicality.

I provide a wide range of Mooradian covers both standard and deluxe.
