After many years in the heart of Montreal’s concert district, Place-des-Arts, Michel Gagnon moved his
workshop to Varennes, Quebec, where the only sound likely to waft in through the windowis bird
song. The tranquility of this river-side town is perfect for Michel, who listens to the subtle
tones of the wood that will be coaxed into becoming the world-class instruments he creates.
Michel Gagnon instruments can take up to two years to build. Instruments are
available for purchase directly from the maker. After purchase, Michel Gagnon instruments are
sound-adjusted by Michel, along with the player, to obtain as near-perfect a sound profile as possible.
