The Workshop

Our repair staff are well-trained and experienced with all manner of stringed instrument repairs and restoration

All in-person repair consultation is by appointment only. Please call us at the shop (650-493-2131) to schedule an appointment to bring your instrument in for evaluation. Due to the backlog of work, we are not able to take in repairs without an appointment. 

The quality of our instrument repair and support is one of the things that differentiates us from other stringed instrument dealers, and you can be assured your instrument repairs will be carried out as if the instruments were our own.
