The studio builds new instruments, completely hand made. Katrien Vandermeersch specializes in the making of the violoncello and the bassviolin (bas de violon). Also the tenoralto has been the subject of some projects. The alto and the violin can be built upon request. The inspiration for the construction of these strings comes not only from ancient Italian masters, but from Flemish violin makers from the 17th and 18th century and modern musicians as well. Besides, the interaction between builder and musician greatly influence the chosen model and the specific demands for the instrument.
Katrien Vandermeersch does not only create new instruments, but does all reparations and restorations as well.
Because the studio is such a small enterprise, the quality is high and customers are guaranteed of a personal approach.
