Set-Up – several precise adjustments can improve the quality of your instrument’s sound. For example, a well-carved bridge made from high quality maple is critical: the primary transmitter of vibrations from the strings to the violin’s soundbox, the bridge needs to be of the right height and thickness for each instrument. Other setup considerations include soundpost adjustment or replacement, peg sizing, string and fittings replacement.

Repairs & Restorations – over time, instruments can suffer several types of damage, from table and peghole cracks to varnish wear, even exposure to the elements. These issues can be resolved, with careful examination of the problem, leading to an effective restoration solution.
