Our repairs are carried out by a qualified violin maker, who has also been working on guitars professionally for over 12 years. We work on all string instruments and standard repairs on site. Amp/electronic repairs are carried out down the road at our fully equipped workshop.

We will give you the best advice and always find the right, most creative and reliable solution

We have a fully equipped workshop and our luthier, who has trained and qualified at Merton College, can undertake all kinds of repairs and servicing in-house. He has also studied bow making under Jan Kudanowski.

We are open to enquiries on all kinds of instruments and have a wealth of experience in Middle Eastern and other Ethnic instruments from all continents as well as traditional western instruments.

We also do minor repairs and alterations on brass and woodwind instruments as well as offering all kinds of electronic repairs (Amp, Speaker, Pedal etc.) and modifications which, depending on severity, can be undertaken in-house or through our external electrician.
