About This Item

For the Versatile Performing Artist and Composer


MIDI circuitry converts analog signal into digital, enabling you to create any possible kind of sound, from duplicating the sound of other instruments to creating all-new sounds. Designed to interact with the Roland GR55 synthesizer and HP Lutherie’s own presets, but can also work with other MIDI systems, with the performer modifying the presets. The Iris MIDI Standard plays perfectly in non-MIDI mode also, through any amplifier. Design is based on the Iris Electro Solidbody Violin. With standard ¼" output jack for non-MIDI, and 13 pin DIN MIDI output jack. 4/4 Size.

About This Brand

HP Lutherie

French Luthier Herve Prudent has been a bassist his entire career, immersed in a multitude of genres. Playing the bowed bass opened new vistas for him early in his career, which led him, 30 years ago, to create his own instruments. Since those early days, Herve has crafted instruments for scores of top-level artists. Constantly experimenting with electronics, combining piezo with magnetic pickups and augmenting with electret microphones, Herve has been driven to create the most natural possible sound. His vision of the amplification of acoustic and classical instruments led him to create pickup systems for entire orchestras. The artist Woodkid (Yoann Lemoine), notable film and video composer and producer, has utilized Herve's systems extensively.

The HP Lutherie pickup system captures a very wide range of tonal colors, yet is very powerful. The dynamic range and bowing nuances of the acoustic playing style are also captured, which will be appreciated by the skilled acoustic artist. Noise is kept to a bare minimum due to the extremely high signal to noise ratio of the electronic system.

Today, in his workshop in France, Herve Prudent has created an entire collection of acoustic and electric violins, under the Iris banner. Crafted with a luthier's deft touch, not manufactured on an assembly line, HP Lutherie instruments possess qualities that only unique, hand-made instruments can have. Proprietary and personal designs, careful craft, finely-tuned electronics, and perfect hand feel, will inspire the motivated artist to reach new musical frontiers.
