Restoration

I take on various jobs, from repairs of accidental new damage to the thorough restoration of an old instrument. A complete restoration can include redoing / revisiting old repairs, cleaning out cracks, removing old retouch, replacing worn edges, structurally strengthening plates where they have deformed and bringing an instrument back into a good playing condition.

Below are a few examples of past projects.

Tommaso Eberle, Naples, c. 1780

Stradivari 1781

Guarneri Del Gesu, Cremona, c. 1728

V. Rugeri, Cremona, c. 1720

Montagnana, Venice, 18th century
