It’s now almost 30 years since that first cittern (which I still play and record with) but I still get excited about every instrument that I design and build at Vector Instruments including upright bass made in Canada. I consider it a blessing to spend my days in a cloud of sawdust, working with wood. It’s an honor to be able to help each musician, no matter what their level, to attain their personal goals.

Just one of our innovations involves the double bass. A huge, generously proportioned instrument measuring over 1.9 metres, the double bass is difficult to transport, making it very costly for classical, jazz and popular musicians who must pay considerable over-baggage charges to travel by airplane to overseas concerts, as well as increasing the risk of damage.  That’s why since 1995 Lamarre, who is constantly looking for new ways to meet his clients’ needs, has been making a semi-acoustic “Lamario” bass with a removable neck, a relatively small instrument that is much easier to transport.

Langdon Strings is the smallest Luthier shop in Southern Alberta. Making, restoration, and maintenance for violin family instruments. A short pleasant drive south of Calgary to the Town Okotoks. Tyler Langdon operates a small luthier business, specializing violin, viola, cello and double bass construction and care. Customers come from all over western North America for repairs, maintenance and a selection of new and restored instruments, and bows.

I first picked up the violin at the age of five, and studied the Suzuki method. It was a terrific introduction to music and fostered a great love and appreciation for music. I’ve been involved with orchestras, bands, and chamber groups since my early teens and currently play the viola in a quartet and civic symphony. My focus has become the creation of new instruments inspired by the great master violin makers, that fill today’s concert halls and fit the requirements of players.

I started building guitars in 1995 and uprights in 2007 at SAUMIER Stringed Instruments. Every instrument I build is unique and has it’s own voice, but always possess the sonic qualities that defines my signature sound: – good volume / exceptional balance from string to string and from the first to the last fret / very wide dynamic range with lots of headroom / remarkable sustain.

These qualities, combined with excellent playability, perfect intonation and super comfortable necks, give all my instruments that little extra that makes them stand out. People who have tried them all agree that they are amongst (if not) the best they have ever played.

Zak Stolk Luthier studies in graphic arts at the Niagara Institute of Technology further developed his artistic ability. His need to experiment with his materials eventually led to instrument making. He studied with Peter Mach, a luthier in Aylmer, Quebec.

Only select aged tone woods (10 – 60 years old) are used to make the violins, violas, cellos, basses, mandolins and archtop guitars. Each instrument is handcrafted from broadleaf maple and Sitka spruce. Zak uses his intuition and liberally borrows from the techniques used by Stradivari and Guarneri. The varnishes he uses are developed from his own formulas.
