François Rainville, luthier

I became interested in the lutherie in 1995. At that time, I was making  electric instruments or guitars and basses. Then, I discovered music and ancient instruments: it was a revelation that would dictate the way that I would then follow.
I make various stringed instruments: citterns, mandores, lyres, psalteries and fiddles bow. To this day, I sold several instruments, in Canada and France, to various people who are enthusiatic about early music. In recent years, I deepened my knowledge of lutherie and Eastern music, mostly Turkish.
