Isabelle Wilbaux has been crafting her violins, violas, and cellos for more than three decades. Today, some of the world’s most distinguished musicians play Wilbaux instruments.
Musicians always comment on the power, warmth and beauty of tone in her instruments. This tone is the result of thousands of hours of research, experimentation, and hard work. Her instruments give players what they want most: an extraordinarily rich, balanced and sonorous palette of colours to work with.
