Lucienne van der Lans, luthier at Dordrecht since 1987.
Around 1600, we find the term “luthier” being applied to lute and violin makers. Four centuries on there is a qualified luthier in the historic centre of Dordrecht, Holland’s oldest city.
LvdL specializes in violins, violas, cellos and double basses. For twenty years now, she has been working on numerous old and new instruments, some priceless, some owned by students. Her main objective is always to perfectly adjust the instrument and so achieve the optimum sound.
