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.
during the period October through June - Pikesville Studio
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 where I have a pleasure working with fine musicians who trust me with their valuable instruments and bows.
Starting summer 2019 I will be in Chautauqua area entire summer and will have full service violin studio where I can do wide range of luthier services.
Remember that I am available for bow service year-round by mail through www.MyBowExpress.com
