Repairs and Maintenance

A proper set up for your violin/viola/cello is vitally important to the playability and sound of your instrument. I recommend having your instrument regularly checked for issues. Below are the most common repairs/maintenance I carry out for clients with a rough price guide.

Bridge fitting

Bridges are a vital part of the violin/viola/cello as they transmit the sound from the strings to the instrument body. The curve on the top of the bridge also partly determines the string action. Over time even a well fitted bridge will begin to warp under the string tension, so it’s important to have a new bridge fitted if it is beginning to warp. A bridge that is left to continue warping is in danger of falling over and damaging the body of the instrument.

Rough price guide:

Violin/Viola: £35 student, £70 advanced
Cello: £60 student
