Violin Repair & Restoration In Bristol
With 20 years experience, the repair and restoration of violins, violas and cellos has given me the knowledge and skills required to sympathetically restore them.
Most customer repairs are from Bristol, Bath, Gloucester area and into Wales but I have on occasion had instruments brought to me from as far as Abu Dhabi.
Occasionally your instrument may require a skilled violin repairman. Whether you have had an accident and may need help with an insurance claim or have decided to take your violin out of it’s case after years of being busy from playing it, I am here to help guide you with the essential work required.
Examinations and estimates are absolutely free with no obligation and an instrument will be lent if required when possible. Call now on 01173 079785 or email to book an appointment.
Common Repairs I do for my customers are;
My goal for every instrument brought to me is to be able to return it to the owner in first class condition and sounding fantastic. All repairs are carried out with the utmost attention to detail, keeping the instrument in the most original condition possible and with the appearance that nothing has happened. All glued repairs are done with hide glue which is water based and reversible should it ever need be. Cracks are re-enforced to prevent the crack re-occurring with studs or cleats. They are both the same thing and are usually made of the same material it is being glued to. They are then shaped and made thin as possible at the edges to prevent new cracks being started.
