Huge volume. Easy to play. In contrast to many other makers I don’t use lattice bracing, tops reinforced with carbon-balsa or other modern design styles. In my opinion, the best-sounding instruments are made by using traditional construction.
The headstock is designed after the shape of my workshop building. In the rosette I use the motif found in the flag for the city of Amsterdam.
The shellac finish, using the traditional French polish method, adds a beautiful luster to the finished instrument.
