Beyond repair?...absolutely not! The damage to this lovely old Scottish scroll looks hopeless but here it is, sound as a bell and looking good again.

We now offer a complete repair and restoration service to all strings, and running repairs to woodwind, fretted instruments and brass. Most repair work is done here in Scotland, while more intricate restoration is carried out in Robi's Budapest workshop. Hand transported whenever possible, instruments entrusted to us are fully insured against accidental damage and all our work is guaranteed.

Please contact initially to discuss details of your repair problem. With fixed rates for simple jobs like peg, bridge, soundpost fitting and re-glueing, firm estimates can usually be provided for more complicated repairs on receipt of digital photographs. We especially like to help young musicians, often on a tight budget, and you will find our prices to be very reasonable across the board, so don't hesitate... it may cost less than you imagine.
