Michel Pellerin has handcrafted over 200 personally designed signature instruments to date. The potential of these instruments hold in their essence the sonic grandeur with rich textural tones and subtle nuances. His guitars express the sensitivity and subtlety of the player, either “pianissimo” or “mezzo forte” without limitation.
Since his training with master luthier Ervin Somogyi in 2011, he has never ceased to experiment, to record data, and to push the sonic limits of the instrument’ either acoustic steel string guitar or 13 – 21 string harp guitars – The sky is the limit!
His consistency in the evolution of his creations is recognized by his mentors and now allows him to frequently exchange conceptual ideas with renowned luthiers such as Mario Beauregard and Linda Manzer.
“Michel is definitely one of the leaders of the new generation of young guitar builders” – Mario Beauregard
“Michel is one of the most exciting new innovative builders on the scene. I love what he does and always keep an eye on what he comes up with” – Linda Manzer
