I want to make a Beautiful Musical Instrument for you!
Hi, my name is Peter Morande. I am a Luthier / Musician based in Montpelier, Vermont.
Music has always been a big part of my life, and I am very lucky to have so many musically talented / and musical appreciators in my life
I've recently started a business called Morande Instruments (Morande-Instruments.com) .
I started building ukuleles back in the winter of 2015 and, I have loved every minute of it, now I try to build as much as possible.
I’ve had quite an interest in the musical instrument field since I was a young kid. I grew up initially wanting to play the drums, and I did finally have the opportunity to start back when I was around the age of 9. In my teen years I transitioned over to guitar/ukulele, mainly Acoustic.
Ever since transitioning over to Guitar and Ukulele, I have been obsessed with how they are constructed, I also find it absolutely fascinating how different bracing/bodies/woods can shape the tone and personality of the instrument.
Ever since deciding to build musical instruments and pursue a life of becoming a luthier I have religiously researched and learned so much and will continue to learn and improve my abilities.
I love building ukuleles and want to keep making even more beautiful instruments also I would love to add more equipment to my workshop so I could expand into building acoustic and electric guitars.
However, I cannot afford the high price of wood, parts, and equipment to build more instruments at a faster rate.
With your help, I can purchase wood, parts and equipment to help get Morande Instruments off the ground!
