Let us guide you

Do you have questions about the origins of your instrument or bow? Do you want to sell or find out more about it?

We offer you our experience for objective and well-founded expertise. Stylistic characteristics, wood analysis, varnish examination, etc. are characteristics that will indicate where, when and possibly by whom the instrument was made.

You can also appeal to us for a value certificate or to insure your instrument.
Gert Schrijvers has been appointed as Belgian expert for the LARK insurance.

We offer an extensive collection
of fine instruments & bows for students, professionals and investors


In addition to our collection of instruments, our workshop offers you a qualified repair and restore service.
The main specialty of the house is sound analysis & optimisation of the sound quality.

You are welcome for a free analysis of your instrument.
Additionally, we offer a rehairing and repair service for bows.


The richness of stringed instruments is
that they are played and then
passed on to future generations.
