Other stringed instruments

Banjo electrique
Mad Banjo

This Banjo model was designed to be played at high volume, at the request of a musician performing on large stages, without risking feedback, or picking up other instruments through the skin as happens with an acoustic banjo.

For this, I imagined a carbon “skin”, suspended on a flexible material to reproduce the cushioning of a real skin; Equipped with an Ischell sensor, it produces a sound very close to acoustic, coupled with an electric sound by its Tele type microphone.

Mahogany body - Composite skin/membrane

Body width 360mm – Thickness 40mm –

Ischell electro system

Magnetic Telecaster pickup

Separate outputs and volumes


Created for the musician Jean-Luc Priano, this Cuatro takes up the dimensions and principles of its Venezuelan cousin, with a contemporary design based on a mini-ouessant. 

Electric Mandola

Custom made, this electric mandola is equipped with 2 single-coil strat pickups,

with a scale of 500 mm, on a Quark shape, one of my guitar models.


This half-body double bass is as space-saving as the CB4, almost a cello, but provides the acoustic sensations of a full double bass. The Cancale has the scale of a classic double bass, 1050 mm, for a smaller body volume; The sides are 150 mm deep, the body 950 mm high by 450 mm at its widest. The soundboard is in spruce, sculpted exterior and interior arch, the body in curly maple, the neck in maple, the adjustable bridge in maple and the fingerboard in ebony.

Body width 460mm – Length 920mm – Depth 170mm –

Slide of 1050mm – total height 1m60 -
