The workshop

The master’s craft

Alexander Snikovski’s craft does the talking. Son of a famous violinist, he comes from a musical background and has learnt to love both instruments and artists. His Russian roots are what give him his lust for life; this is where his passion for the craft all began, from his time as a violinist and later a luthier at the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatoire.

His passion for the art

Alexander refined his technique through the restoration of instruments in France before opening his own studio in Lyon in 1995. From being a young apprentice he has now become a recognized master luthier who works with musicians all over the world. Both a talented musician and entrepreneur, he has spent everyday for the past 40 years at the service of the musical world, both musicians and their instruments alike.
