Liverpool & North Wales workshops
Always a selection of fully restored antique instruments and new professionally setup and ready-to-play instruments in stock.
Standard and specialist repairs, full restoration and conservation. I can provide a courtesy instrument for the duration of the repair. I am an approved repairer for Allianz Musical Instrument Insurance.
I can improve your instrument's sound (projection, amplitude, tone & timbre) and make it easier to play.
Quality bow rehairing, stick and frog repairs, and camber/warp correction.
Superbly crafted instruments & bows commissioned and made to your personal specification.
Honest assessment and judgment of instruments with a written evaluation report or a free verbal opinion. Formal valuations for probate and insurance purposes.
Michael is a professional and friendly traditional maker, repairer and restorer of instruments and bows of the violin family.
A graduate of the world renown Newark School, and formally trained in the methods of Antonio Stradivari, he gained NSVM certification and holds the Beare’s Diploma for violin making.
A specialist in instrument set up and tonal adjustment, Michael is also an approved repairer for Allianz Musical Instrument Insurance.
Appearances on BBC Television & Radio, plus lectures in Europe, have resulted in some of the world’s top players seeking out Michael’s skills and assistance … that said, he is equally committed to looking after his many student players and beginners . . .
I love to meet my customers, so if you plan to visit without an appointment please call 07977 263 617 first, to confirm I am at the workshop on that day.
*** Please note that unfortunately I cannot give estimates for repairs or appraisals for insurance purposes by phone or email until I have seen and assessed your instrument/bow in person.
