Instruments by David DEROY

Fascinated by the instruments made in Cremona in the Classical Period , this is wher I find inspiration for my making .


 I use for my violins either a Carlo Bergonzi Model or a late Guarneri Del Gesu ,    depending  of the type of sound I am looking for .

 I take great care to the choice of wood , the spruce I use comes from the Italian Alps and the flamed maple from Bosnia or Romania.


My instruments have a powerful and warm tone , and musicians often says that they are easy  to play and have a lot of precision in the articulation of sound  .

I take great care to the set up of my instruments to obtain the best playing confort ( shape of the neck ,fingerboard , bridge curvature ...)


My Violas are made on a Giacommo Genaro Model ,( he was working with the Amati Family) it combines a very pure and perfect outline and all the best acoustic properties .


In 2004 , I received a first prize for violin  in the London international violin making competition . My instruments are played by students and Soloist in Europe and in the USA ;

You can find my instruments in the USA , In Boston at Johnson’string
