Instrument Repair and Restrings

We can repair and setup almost any stringed instrument.

Bruce Roper is our long standing repair person, and works on all manner and level of instruments. You can link to his site here.

We also do in-house restrings - usually within 24 hours - just stop in with your acoustic or electric guitars, banjos, mandolins, violins, ukuleles, and basses. Also, feel free to call us and set up an appointment for other instruments.

In most cases, a strap button can be installed while you wait.

For violin repair we recommend Paul Wargaski. Paul is a local builder and orchestral string repair person who also handles our children's fractional violin rentals. Visit his site here.
