Ecole de lutherie Internationale "Gauthier Louppe" - Marche-en-Famenne | Belgique | Tel: +32(0)

The name of this violin refers to the wind as a symbol of freedom. It emphasizes the freedom with which Gauthier LOUPPE realized this instrument. It is already regarded as a masterpiece by musicians for the sound it can produce, as well as by violin-makers who appreciate the technical expertise of this “crazy” realisation as much as its beauty, quality and creativity.
