WE HELP YOU FIND “YOUR” INSTRUMENT:
Perhaps we can help you find your dream instrument !
We often receive information about instruments on sale (about 600-900 per year) that our foundation cannot acquire. If you are looking for a particular instrument, historical or modern, we can put you directly in contact with the owners of these instruments. Please, write us precisely what you are looking for. It’s our duty, but also a pleasure to help you.
