OUR HISTORY

<transcy>...is that of a passion.</transcy>

<transcy>MAKE BEAUTIFUL INSTRUMENTS</transcy>

We are fortunate to be in a "passion" business. Every day, we work with beautiful woods, tune instruments and think about the best way to share with you our vision of the guitar and the bass. And the best part is that we also meet passionate people who will choose one of our instruments, or entrust us with the realization of a unique object that will be personal to them.

This is what we have been lucky enough to do every day since 2016, and we thank you for it and are happy to share it with you!

OF PASSION

To make beautiful things and think every day about the best way to do it, it's a story of passion.

OF THE KNOW-HOW

"A hundred times over, you'll do it again" is a saying that applies particularly to the craft of violin making. 

LOTS OF COFFEE

Because it takes hours to make guitars. In addition to coffee, it will also take :
Patience, precision, etc.

<transcy>The story of a meeting</transcy>

Quentin opens his first violin making workshop in 2016.
Quentin and Yann meet at the end of 2019 thanks to the creation of a first instrument (the first SY). Excited by this adventure, they decide to join forces to take the workshop to the next level.
Thrilled by this adventure, Yann hastened to tell Paul and David, whom he had known for many years. Who better than Paul (living encyclopedia of rock) can understand this passion for guitars?
This is how this solo adventure became a duo, before becoming a quartet!

Rich of four different and complementary personalities, this new adventure becomes official in July 2021, in the form of a new company. We put together our positive (and overflowing) energies in order to create for you the best instruments.


The rest of the story is now written with you ;-)

<transcy>OUR FRIMOUSES</transcy>

"Dad, what does a luthier look like?"

YANN VENDRELY

A long time guitar fan, it was time for me to start working in the workshop as well because my wife forbade me to buy new ones.
After having followed and validated all the formations of the school of the Trades of Art of Saint-Quentin, I manufactured my first guitars during my studies and never stopped since.
