Atelier Marc Ducornet Instruments

The Atelier Marc Ducornet instruments are only produced upon demand, and combine a very high musical quality and excellent touch at a reasonable price. They have been selected by many harpsichordists, conservatories and orchestras in France and around the world and are constantly played in concert, on recordings etc.

We offer these instruments with simple finishes (brush-painted with one or two colors) using modern materials and techniques. Wooden jacks are standard, but simplified on some instruments.

The stands, music desks and various other details have been also simplified.

Various options are available, and each instrument comes with a manual and several tools for tuning and maintenance.

These instruments are signed with a plaque on their wrestplank that reads “Atelier Marc Ducornet à Paris 2009”.
