The Despiau family, wood craftsmen since 1920.
Three generations recognised for their high quality in wood manufacturing.
Jean-Louis Despiau created the first bridge in 1984, after 10 years of research on acoustics, boosting the manufacturing to become CHEVALETS DESPIAU, one of today's world leaders in this exclusive market of high quality bridges for stringed instruments.
Three of his children joined the company later on to take on the sales and marketing, quality and management roles.
We offer a complete range of products, classical and baroque styles which will meet your highest expectations: high, medium, low arch and heart, treated or untreated wood, customized bridges. All these are available in four different types of quality.
