Repair and adjustment of violins, violas, cellos and bows are available through my shop. The work is performed by myself or one of my staff of expert violin repair specialists.  Bow work is done by Mark Wagar who has his own shop.  instrument work is done either by John Waddle or Marinos Anastasios Glitsos in the shop, or Patrick Milan, or Steve Rossow who both have their own shops.  

On January 20th, 2018, I wrote the 8000th Work Order.  I started numbering them in 1986 when I started, and have kept up the numbering system ever since.   

Repairs range from:

• Set up and adjustment for improved playability

• Soundpost adjustment

• Repair of cracks or minor damage

• Varnish touch up

• Full restoriation of badly damaged instruments
