Making of my instruments is based on the classical tradition

This means that, even if inspired by the national schools of harpsichord making or by single makers of the past, my instruments, generally,  are not close copies of any historical instrument. 

Anyway, my wiews on remaking instruments is inscribed within the rules of this craft as we know reading the old treatises,  examining the survived instruments of the past and studing the tradition of this art between XVI and XVIII centuries.
