Repairs and Restorations:
Repairs and restorations are another important part of my work. With the aid of today's state-of-the-art techniques, every type of repair is possible.
Instruments which you entrust to my care will be restored in my workshop in light of the required playing characteristics. In conserving the original materials, I pay meticulous attention to ensuring that the authentic tone character and the design of the instrument are completely preserved.
In conjunction with the repairs, if desired I will also make tonal adjustments to your instrument. Here you can give your instrument a special tone quality to suit your individual taste.
24-hour Repair Service:
If an appointment is made in advance, minor repairs and bow rehairing can be completed within 24 hours.
Unfortunately, only in the case of very few instruments have the tonal possibilities been exhaustively explored. Merely by adjusting the soundpost and bridge I can give a particular direction to the tonal spectrum of your instrument, in accordance with your personal taste.
I will be glad to advise you.
Consultation Concerning the Origin and Age of your Instrument:
It often happens that the origin and age of older instruments is unknown. Based on my experience, and by means of antiquarian research, conclusions can be drawn concerning your instrument. Come to my workshop with your instrument for a consultation, preferably by appointment.
