Lutherie & Instrument Repair


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 from Lemur Music- only its neck completely snapped off, had no sound post or bridge yet, and the fingerboard was warped. After an intensive reconstruction, it's the same upright bass that I gig with to this day.

Please Note: I live in Santa Rosa now - I almost exclusively provide these services locally to the North Bay Area
