It sounds better than ever. A huge thank you to Adrian. Love your work.

The Simply for Strings team brought my 1977 violin back to life.

Start Ratings

Yes it's old. Yes it's not the best violin in the world but my grandmother bought it for me so holds sentimental value. The service at this shop is how good ol' fashioned service used to be everywhere. Thank you for a lovely experience.

Simply for Strings did a really great job servicing the new cello I had recently bought.

Start Ratings

I had just purchased a new cello to replace the old rented one I was using and had it serviced, as well as some small adjustments made and they made sure the instrument was working well. They did an amazing job and made sure that my first owned cello was in great condition for use, thank you so much.

Simply for Strings did an absolute marvellous job servicing my violin.

Start Ratings

I've played it for over 30 years and I don't think it has ever sounded as good as it does now. The staff were lovely and I really appreciated the excellent advice from the luthier, who just worked wonders on the violin! They also fixed up my little 1/8 violin and did a lovely job with that too.

Simply for Strings were sensational from the minute they answered the phone to the fast turnaround

My old bass was in a bad way and I had a very short timeframe for repairs. Simply for Strings were sensational from the minute they answered the phone to the fast turnaround, despite being snowed under with back to school repairs. The after repair service and information provided was much appreciated. I won't be going anywhere else with my bass from now on. Thanks so much everyone!
