Services

Appraisals: 

Verbal appraisals are available by appointment starting at $30.  If an instrument is valued less than $100, there will be no charge for evaluation.  If you choose to have an instrument repaired by us or sold by us on consignment, the fee would be taken off your repair bill or consignment commission.                              

Written appraisals by the owner are available starting at $75 for instruments valued up to $10,000.  Extra fees may apply if there is significant research time involved.

Repairs & Restorations:

Written repair estimates are available by appointment.  We have tiered pricing options based on whether a luthier or master luthier performs the work.  Services may be chosen ala carte based on our recommendations.  All instrument work is done in-house.  We work with a bowmaker and master bowmaker for all bow services including rehairs. 

Consignments:

If you have an instrument or bow for sale, we will offer you advice on the best method of sale.  In some cases, we may offer direct purchase.  Instruments may be consigned with us for a maximum commission of 25% of the sale price.  Commission rates will be reduced for higher valued instruments.  Instruments must be in good repair to be listed for sale.  If they require work to be done, the repairs must be paid for before the instrument will be put up for sale.  If the instrument is repaired, the sale commission will be capped at 20%.  We can also offer advice for sale at auction.

Instruments may be picked up and/or delivered for evaluation for a fee.
