Instrument care

Looking after your instrument and bow click here.

Our restorers generally use the same tools, techniques and materials that have been employed in instrument making and repair for the last three centuries. For a glossary of terms click here.

Work undertaken ranges from instrument set-up to general maintenance and bow-rehairing to complete instrument restoration. All restorers used are quallfied experts in their field and include luthiers with many years of experience in the top London workshops.

Estimates for repairs and restorations are free of charge but visiting by appointment is strongly recommended - just phone us on 01462 426012 or email sales@strings.co.uk.

NB: A small number of customers have left instruments with us for repairs/estimates and never returned to collect them. We endeavour to unite instrument and customer in these instances but due to limited space, we have now instigated a 6 month 'storage' limit after which we will dispose of such items as we see fit.
