Violin, Viola, Cello, and Bass Repairs --Done Right

Patience, a steady hand, and attention to detail

Our technicians have more than 50 years of combined experience repairing stringed instruments. We pride ourselves in doing repairs right. We may not always be the cheapest, but our prices are fair with our regular rate for bench work or adjustments being $60/hour (the fact that all of our owners still work daily in the front or back of the store tells you that no one here has retired early!).

If you have a broken violin, viola, cello, or double bass in need of repair or restoration, stop by and we’ll be happy to take a look and talk things over with you! Or you can contact us. Although, if you contact us we will be responding to your inquiry without seeing your instrument (unless you email us photos) — and the absolute best way for us to provide you an estimate is when we personally evaluate your instrument.
