Repair and Restoration





















Instruments age, they break, they wear out, they suffer accidents. The best of them are built very light and give amazing performance from such a small package; they are also fragile and require regular maintenance.

I offer a full range of restoration, repair, finish, and setup work. There are no shortcuts to great work and performance;  the ideal repair is invisible, reversible, uses  period correct materials, adhesives, and methods. Properly done, it makes an enjoyable and fine playing instrument that also maintains your  long term  investment.
