For the past 20 years I have been making, restoring and repairing string instruments and taking care of the bows. I specialize in instrument setup, sound adjustment and bow maintenance. I provide full range of all luthier services. My customers include performing artists, music teachers, orchestral musicians, music students and music lovers. I treat all my customers with equal attention and respect.
I see customers by appointment. My prices are highly competitive and turnaround time is excellent. Rehair is $55 and $65 for same day service.
There is never a charge for checking out instruments and recommendations.
I studied violin making at Chicago School of Violin Making and bow making with Michael Vann in Victoria, Canada.
I find bow restoration and maintenance especially rewarding. As a classically trained violist, I believe that the bow is what gives you your voice, your sound. Quality of bow rehair is very important.
For the past 10 years, I spent my summers working as a "luthier-in-residence" at Chautauqua music festival. It is there that many fine musicians shared with me their frustrations of not having expert bow rehair where they live. In most cases quality rehair service is simply not available outside of major metropolitan centers.
