I take great pride in providing a friendly and professional service, whilst maintaining the highest quality of craftmanship at all times. Whether your instrument is in need of a full restoration or just needs re-stringing and a clean, I will endeavour to bring out the best in the instrument and restore it to a sound and fully playable condition.
If you have any queries please don't hesitate to get in touch and I'll be happy to assist you, I welcome your enquiries and will be pleased to offer help.
All instruments can benefit from regular servicing and just one hours work could transform your instrument.
Over time, various components can move around and this can drastically affect the performance of the instrument, just the repositioning of a bridge, soundpost or the adjustment of the top nut can radically improve how an instrument will play.
I will be happy to examine your instrument, point out any problems and, if you wish, quickly rectify them for you.
Re-stringing, cleaning and set-up
I am able to supply all string sets. and, for a small charge, fit them to your instrument. I have a full range of strings and will be happy to advise as to which set would be the most appropriate for your instrument.
If your instrument is ready for new strings then this is always a good time to consider any small adjustments as well as an opportunity to give your instrument a good clean.
I will be happy to advise you on how to get the best out of your particular instrument and to discuss any particular issues that may be affecting the performance of it.
