String Replacement

For a student who plays and practices regularly, it is suggested they get all strings replaced yearly. Strings can amass a build up of rosin and other residue, as well as begin unwinding over time. Aged strings do not vibrate as well and will affect your sound!

Part Adjustment and Replacement

Each part on an Orchestral instrument is cut and fit precisely to that specific instrument. It is important to have your instrument inspected regularly for fit and signs of wear.

Crack Repair

Cracks occur when an Orchestral Instrument experiences undue stress on the body. Since these instruments are hollow, a fall or even a part being fit incorrectly can cause the face, sides, or back to crack in varying degrees and places.
