All news from La Voix du Luthier
The very first Onde from production.
Marc, our stringed instrument maker, has finalized the production Onde number 0. The one done to check that everything is fine, in order to fix any possible remaining details about shipping. As a real life full test, he shipped it to Christophe. So that’s also a way to show you what you will receive with your Onde. Let’s start the unboxing of the Onde.

Here are some news as we will very soon start the production and shipping of the Ondes. Last week, from Monday to Wednesday I was at Marc’s workshop to set the last details in order to be able to start the production and I also assemble 10 drawers of amplifiers for the first batch of production. We will start with a “number 0”, expected early next week , just to check that everything is fine, and correct the possible issues, and then go on for a first batch. Onde number 1 will go to our very first backer, we will also ship a few to some beta-testers to make sure we didn’t miss anything, and then we will take the backers in Kisckstarter’s order (modulated by the options that were taken by some).
The “Acoustic Combo” of the ContinuMini campaign will be managed at the same time as all stands of the La Voix du Luthier campaign.
We will also soon turn all pre-orders into firm order.
Thank you very much for your patience, passion and future use of your acoustic speaker.
First look at the new modular case from La Voix du Luthier. Made of wood by our luthier. An affordable and compact solution to be on the road with modulars.
Awesome and crazy times at Superbooth 2019 in Berlin. A lot of visitors, a lot of fun, a great pleasure to present the Onde, the Pyramide, and our new modular case in this unique festival.

The Pyramid comes with a high end amplifier designed by Luc Bourachot. This amplifier is a true 2*40W class A designed in harmony with the Pyramid. This picture shows a proof of concept. All components are individually tested to deliver an incredible and precise sound.
The Onde and the Pyramid are perfect for electronic instruments, but not only. If you plug an electric or an electro-acoustic guitar in these speakers, will have access to a new way to feel your instrument and your sound. These speakers are more « acoustic » than a standard amp. This is a new way to experiment sound design with your guitar.

Take with you your laptop or your iOS device, your favorite controller and the Onde. You are ready to play outside anywhere you want. Acoustic jams in your garden, electronic live session in nature, all is possible.
Haken Audio is the manufacturer of the famous Haken Continuum Fingerboard. The team of Haken Audio is involved in La Voix du Luthier, sharing the expertise and the experience of manufacturing awesome musical products.
The idea of the Onde and the Pyramid came when Christophe Duquesne and Marc Lucas decided to work together on the Cantate. The Cantate is an acoustic augmented instrument. Christophe is also an expert in physical modeling synthesis. The concept of « resonators » is one of the starting point of La Voix du Luthier technologies. From a french acoustic luthier to a world Kickstarter campaign.
