Violin, Viola and Cello Repairs

The violin family allows musicians to express themselves in a way that only the most talented human voice can truly exceed. In order to allow your violin to speak for you, a violin, cello or viola must be properly set up and well matched to your needs.

Many people begin on poorly made or poorly set up violins, with the belief that they or their child needn’t worry too much about the instrument they’re using as they are ‘only a beginner’. We disagree with this approach as a poorly suited instrument can detract from the player progressing and in many cases lead them to quit, believing their perceived lack of skills to be the problem, when in reality their instrument was the obstacle.

We also understand that not everyone has a large budget to work with, so our luthier’s passion is helping each individual find the right approach for them. Whether that’s through adjusting, restoring or repairing an existing instrument, arranging a rental or sourcing a brand new violin.

Please do get in touch with any enquiry, no matter how small you believe it to be.

The most common violin repairs that we undertake are:

  • Peg replacements/ adjustments/ fittings
  • Bridge replacements/ adjustments/ fittings
  • Chin rest replacements
  • Soundpost settings

If you require a violin repair that is not on our list please contact us, we’re happy to help.

*note that we currently do not re-hair violin bows.
