We can bring new life to your stringed instrument.
Repair Accidental Damage
It happens. Violins get dropped. Cellos get bumped. Scratches, dings, cracks, and even holes can usually be repaired. Our goal is to bring these damaged instruments back to their original sound and responsiveness.
We perform repairs on:
Because of demand, and because it is sometimes impossible to perform a solid repair on an inferior instrument, repairs are limited to instruments from well-known manufacturers, those purchased from violin shops, and some old or antique instruments.
Adjustments & Maintenance
Regular maintenance and occasional adjustments will keep your violin, viola, cello or bass playing and sounding like new.
We can usually provide a quick turnaround for these types of minor repairs:
Adjust bridge or nut
Reglue open seams
Repair slipping pegs
We bring older, high-quality instruments and bows back to their original vitality through careful restoration work. Because we are the only shop in our region with a professionally trained luthier, we are uniquely qualified to give your instrument the professional restoration it deserves.
