Micheal Batell

Instrument Maker

I am an American maker of concert classical and flamenco guitars, living in Berlin since 2007. I work alone making classical and flamenco guitars, always focusing on refinement in all areas of construction, from aesthetics to playability and tonal response. I produce about 15 guitars per year, by commission as well as for a few select dealers.

I also occasionally work on special projects such as Harpsichords and Viola da Gambas, which were a specialty of mine in previous years and for which I am currently creating new blueprints of several historic instruments I had the opportunity to document more than 30 years ago. I am currently adding to my winter production 2 new Viola da Gambas for exhibition in Paris and Belgium next year.

I have lectured and taught instrument making in former years in the US, and today I am active in festivals, symposia and exhibitions throughout Europe. I am therefore very pleased to be have been invited to exhibit at the first Guitar EXPO & Festival of the Dutch Guitar Foundation and I look forward to seeing many of my friends there.
