I enjoy the challenges of repair and restoration work and the creative problem-solving that goes along with it. In the last ten years I've worked on hundreds of instruments, from vintage collector's pieces to hard-working road tools. I use period-appropriate materials and adhesives and uphold a high standard of craftsmanship. I'm also sensitive to the needs of the working musician and strive for a quick turnaround time.Every case is different and it's impossible to diagnose an instrument without seeing it. I don't charge an inspection fee.
