Workshop evaluations are necessary to determine the current condition in order to provide you with an estimate for repair or restoration. There are many levels of restoration depending on your individual circumstance. We have done complex restorations for valuable instruments that are in the hands of prominant musicians, relatively quick repairs for student instruments, and many folks have sentimental family instruments that they would like to have minimal work done to preserve it as a keepsake. We can advise you on what we feel would be the best options based on the instruments current value and what it would be worth after the work is done.
These are detailed line-item listings of repairs recommended to put an instrument or bow into top playing condition.
Repair estimate — per hour (pro-rated): $110 (average fee: $45)
(This amount will be applied toward the repair should you decide to have us do the work)
