Lutherie & Instrument Repair
(Sonoma County/Bay Area)


I started working in instrument repair when I was 17 and bought my first upright bass on a budget; the bass was damaged in shipping and I bought it at wholesale value- only its neck completely snapped off, had no sound post or bridge yet, and the fingerboard was warped. My first reconstruction is the same upright bass that I gig with to this day, with no signs of breaking.


After training at the San Diego County Music Exchange for seven seven years, I decided to bring my craft with me when I moved to Sonoma County. Scroll down to see what services I offer.
