Restoration & Repair


All of our work is done with the greatest of care with the health and long-term playability of the instrument as our primary concerns. We enjoy the challenge of complete restorations, as well as less extensive repairs and adjustments. Tonal adjustments can turn good sounding instruments into great sounding instruments. Our philosophy is that only by involving the player wholly in the process, can we reach the instruments best voice. As such, rich and productive conversations often occur through the immediate adjustment-feedback process and together we reach a deeper understanding of the instrument and collaboratively bring it to its highest potential. We accept walk-ins on a daily basis and welcome appointments.
