Welcome to my website

My life is dedicated to making classical concert guitars that sound as beautiful and powerful as possible.
Please read the following information as you please, and get an idea of what I am making.

The strong points of my classical concert guitars are:
 • Playing in large halls and playing together with other instruments
    (because of the powerful sound)
 • More interesting interpretations
    (because of the wide dynamic range and the inspiring sound)
 • Better legato and better polyphonics
    (because of the long sustain)
 • Easier playing
    (because of the efficient use of the energy, the powerful sound and the elevated fingerboard)

 My guitars are played by some of the best guitarists as well as by amateurs, in many countries all over the world.

Recent developments in my guitarmaking

I have developed a
Contrabass Concert Guitar

One octave lower than a normal guitar
6 strings
90 cm scale

New double top combination: 
Cedar outside and Spruce inside  
  The sound is predominantly cedar, with some added
  spruce characteristics, a.o. better separation of the notes.
Oval concert guitar

The first oval concert guitar has left my workshop (November 2013)!
Sudbury guitar trio

The Sudbury guitar trio are now playing
 Jeroen Hilhorst Super concert guitars!

Their comment:
“… The tone, sonic characteristics, sustain and volume. UNBELIEVABLE!”
