Repairs and restorations

Blackburn Stringed Instruments offers a first class repair and restoration service on all bowed stringed instruments, except for the double bass.


We pride ourselves particularly on the quality of our tonal 'set-up' on stringed instruments (i.e. the fitting of the bridge, sound post, pegs and strings).

Every instrument which we sell is offered in as near a perfect condition as possible.

The following price list (which is an indicator only) shows the most frequently requested repairs. Prices are for labour only and do not include the cost of materials and VAT. A written estimate will be provided before any work is undertaken.
