Whether I restore your instrument or sell you an instrument, we shall work through the process at your pace. Ultimately all musicians strive to get the best from their instrument and my aim is always to do everything I can to help you to achieve this. Sometimes this can simply be a small inexpensive adjustment/tweak or maybe a wolf note that needs taming on your cello (Yes I really can!), or an indepth restoration taking many hours.
My full personal attention, care and service is unparalleled.
What you can expect
Repairs/Restorations of the highest possible standard; having been trained to produce only the best workmanship.
Top quality materials, including a well chosen selection of strings and fittings.
Regular maintenance will ensure your instrument is in peak playing condition at all times.
Set up correctly to ensure the most comfortable playing experience.
Professional tonal adjustment and set-up to ensure the ideal tone production for you and your instrument.
As a musician, I have a greater understanding of the player’s needs, and a good ear.
As a technician, I can bring an impartial and professional eye – and ear! – to the way an instrument is set up. Sometimes owners are too close to their instrument to see how it can be improved.
I offer Restoration, Repairs, Tonal Adjustments, Servicing, Set up, Instrument and Bow sales, Rehairs, and Accessories.
If you are seeking to buy, I may have an instrument to suit your needs or can advise on the purchase of the right instrument for you.
Want to sell? I will purchase direct from you, or you can sell on commission through me. Lets have a chat and book an appointment.
I offer a bow rehairing service for violin, viola and ‘cello bows. All you need to do is drop the bow off and I will do the rest!
Bow restoration is also a service I provide and also the little things like a new lapping or thumb grip.
I offer a bow rehairing collection and delivery service for orchestras, when collectively the players require a minimum of 8 bows rehairing.
The bow restorers/makers and rehairers that I outsource to are amongst the best in the country. Each individual job is assessed by me and carried out by the best bow restorer for that job.
