What a joy! I don’t know what you did but you did it right. She seems sweeter than she ever has been. Even with new strings and unplayed. Perfect absolutely perfect. I can’t wait to see what she sounds like in a couple weeks. I played till 2 o’clock this morning. I couldn’t stop. It's always scary seeing your violin in pieces so thanks guys for making this a positive experience, it was a huge job and Kevin and his crew delivered perfection, as usual.

Old concepts in fine tuners; different countries, different points in times. All of these little weirdos (and a few interesting beauties) have floated in to my shop over the last 30 years.

It’s fun to see good violins but also fun to see interesting old cases. This one is a “Koverite” Violin Case in purple velvet from Lifton Mfg. Co.(Union Made, fully guaranteed) circa 1924.

Here’s a slant

We lost one of the great American songwriters and my personal favorite, John Prine. No one could say so much in so few words. This is "Souvenirs."

New rental customer set up in the shade with an espresso. Taking up a new instrument as the spring is coming on. Very sweet.

Neuner & Hornsteiner „Verleger” (publisher) violin, Mittenwald Germany circa 1870. Stradivarius pattern with one piece back. Lovely, even and responsive over the entire register. For sale: $2600.
Just finished restoring this violin. A great way to spend isolation time. This one had been hanging above my bench watching me work for years.

[04/09/20]   Big job, satisfied customer. Thanks for the feedback Robert Winn. 😉

Cosmetic redressing of an ugly old repair. Easier to look at after some careful retouch. To really disappear/restore this area would be to remove the top, reopen the crack, clean it properly, reglue and reassemble it.

Not to be kept down by coronavirus: going double decker.

From the Repair Shop 3/25/20:
Doing a button replacement today on a Canadian violin from 1894 made by Joseph Hugill. Communicating with the customer, I told him that I was putting on music as a soundtrack for the restoration. He decided to listen to same music alongside from his home as I worked. I sent him photos of the work as the day unfolded. Felt good having him on board that way. Sweet fun. 🙂

[03/23/20]   Darn we just went into full restriction in the state of New Mexico: all nonessential businesses are to be closed. How is music not essential?
Anyway we too are going to have to close our business for the time being.
I will still be here doing repairs and trying to get them back to you as I complete them.
Call our away (505) 427-3568 If you have any questions.

Despite our best intentions this post is no longer valid. We are in fact closed as per the orders of our governor.

[03/13/20]   Every particular business has to think fast and reckon with this situation. Just what and how in our line? Small in our way like so many, we did not have a pandemic plan in place. Any of you have clear thoughts on how to hold this? I will be there for you all as needed. Your music is the movement and heart and breath in this world. (Is it perhaps a good chance to take up the violin or some thing anyway?) Take care of yourselves. We’re here only a little while no matter what. Precious are rare.
