Hello to everyone!

I started to build the violins in 2009 under the supervision of Peter Mach that is well renowned with over 35 years of experience. I bought everything then to have my own luthier shop. I sold many violins to advanced musicians and professionals. I am taking now the decision to sell all my equipment because I have a 45 hours per week permanent job in Ottawa and I do not have anymore the time to build violins. If Interested people into the Ottawa and Gatineau erea (Qubec, Canada), then let's set an appointment to visit my place. Everything is in excellent condition.

Hi Pierre,   I am curious about your homemade rib thickness system.  Can you show a picture of it?  or explain how it works?

Hello Mike,

I am sorry, for the moment I prefer not to share, because it is a custom concept where I want to protect my rights, I maybe interested developing a market with it.

Regards,
Pierre
