Repairs & Servicing

Knowing who to trust with something as precious as your instrument can be tough. Simply for Strings understands that your instrument can be like a member of your family and you only want the best for your violin, viola, cello or double bass.

We understand that during your treasured instrument’s lifetime, it will need a little TLC. Whether it’s a service, a repair, or there’s been some damage to your instrument (don’t worry, we’ve been there too), we offer professional consultations on all stringed instruments. 

After years of careful and considered planning, we are thrilled to have our own onsite luthiers studio - allowing us to bring an incredible wealth of knowledge and skill to our customers within the walls of our Old Church.

For small modifications such as re-stringing, tuning, cleaning and other basic maintenance or servicing, visit our blog for our top tips, or bring it in-store so our knowledgeable and friendly staff can assist you.

Need something else? We understand these things happen and we'll be able to provide you with a quote once we've looked over your instrument. For more extensive damages and repairs such as new bridge carvings, sound-post adjustments, fingerboard modifications, seam re-glues and crack restorations, our workshop team will be able to assess and talk you through what may need doing.

Not sure what's needed? That's where we come in! If you're unsure of what repairs your instrument might need, just visit us during opening hours and we'll take care of the rest. You don't need to have purchased your instrument from Simply for Strings to have it serviced or repaired by our luthiers.

Going all out and needing an extensive restoration? How exciting! Let's talk it through with one of our very experienced and talented luthiers in-store. Please book an appointment above, or give us a call to arrange a time that suits you.
