The art of Restoration
Enhancing a violin, viola or cello is an art in itself. We believe that the classical techniques handed down by our forefathers, supplemented by modern technology, are the perfect tools to use for these timeless instruments. Tried and true restoration methods, such as plate tuning, work in tandem with groundbreaking procedures, such as using newer wood to replicate the properties of old wood, to bring tired instruments back to life.
Our sheer love for string instruments shines through in every aspect of our work. No detail is too small for our attention and we wouldn’t see it fit to begin restoring an instrument without first understanding its distinct personality.
The art of restoration is a dance that involves the instrument, the owner and the luthier. Trust us to be a willing and capable partner dedicated to your instrument’s welfare and your satisfaction.
