The playing qualities of my instruments have been helped greatly by my own insights as a performer, with the result that there are more owners among professional harpsichordists and leading figures in the Early Music world, than many makers can claim. Of course, their feedback has been invaluable in turn, helping me to continue to improve the standard of my work, as well as control the touch and response of an instrument to a particular person’s needs.

Owners include:


Colin Tilney (four instruments)


Vicky Boeckmann
Lars Ulrik Mortensen
Nicolai and Hanne Nielsen


Christine Daxelhofer
Irene Muller-Glasewald
Kristian Nyquist (two instruments)
