L&P workshop in Vallensbæk just 10 miles from the centre of Copenhagen.
How everything began
We are a small workshop specializing in the individual needs of musicians. Since 1980 we have worked closely with some of the finest musicians from around the globe. We listened and learned about their needs and expectations. Lohff & Pfeiffer aim is to understand the individualized demands musicians make of their instruments and provide custom solutions to satisfy those demands.
Our training and experience include an education as an instrument maker at the Marigaux oboe workshop in France, training with the bassoon and oboe manufacturer Fox in the United States, as well as James Keyes and the Mateki flute workshop in Japan. Further training in acoustics, tuning, and voicing soon followed. In 1989 we became a Buffet factory agent . The expertise and experience gained from over 3 decades of working closely with top musicians provide an invaluable asset to customers.
Having begun working exclusively with oboes, 3 years later our work expanded to include bassoons, and 6 years later we began to work with clarinets and eventually recorders. This slow expansion into the various woodwind families allowed insight into their individual requirements and gave us time to truly understand the acoustics of each, as well as the concepts that can lead to improvements from one instrument type to another.
Large selection of instrumens from Ab to Contra bass
LOCATION Our modern, fully-equipped workshop provides affordable, top-quality repairs, optimization, and very individual customization. Our 3-year warranty applies to all work, from small adjustments, general overhauls, and restorations, to complex custom solutions.
Fully equiped workshop
Lohff & Pfeiffer is located in the idyllic village of Vallensbæk, a small suburb of Copenhagen, where we are pleased to welcome our customers. There is the opportunity to leisurely test new and used instruments or work with us one-on-one to adjust your instrument for your specific needs.
Due to demand, we cooperate with selected workshops in Germany, England, France, Poland, Italy, and Thailand. In 2011 we established a branch in the USA, based in Takoma Park, Maryland, near Washington D.C. All are part of our Lohff & Pfeiffer team. In addition to repair techniques exclusive to Lohff and Pfeiffer, they share our philosophy and awareness of the professional musician's expectation of quality.
