Repairs, Rehairs & Restorations

  • Rehairs can be done while you wait.
  • We offer seasonal tune-ups.
  • Maintain the health of your instrument.
  • We repair damage caused by wear and accidents.
  • We restore older instruments with sensitive care.

(Bow repair requires different skills and tool set to that of violin repair. Whenever possible, have your bows worked on by a skilled bow maker and restorer.)
