Alain Polak, traverso maker, established his workshop in Barcelona in the beginning of the nineties. Having acquired a thorough knowledge of the instrument as a player (he studied at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague with Barthold Kuijken), he is particularly aware of the requirements concerning tone quality and tuning.

His replicas of baroque and classical flutes are all hand-made, and cover a large range of pitches, from A= 392 to A= 440. They can be seen and played at the international exhibitions of Utrecht, Bruges, London, Frankfurt, Berlin and Paris, and, of course, in the workshop:
