I'm fully operational, running at full capacity. I work by appointment only and the booking calendar below is your way into the shop. Just click on the link and choose a time and date. If there are no slots available, check back periodically. Slots open as I finish jobs, which happens every day.
If you have a question about the jobs I perform or whether I work on particular instruments, look for the answer below in the FAQ's. Also, if you are looking for pricing info that is not covered below, be aware that in most cases I need to see your instrument on my bench to give you an accurate quote. I refrain from quoting jobs,"ballpark" or otherwise, without inspecting the instrument as there are far too many variables to consider.
I have implemented some common-sense social distancing protocols outlined below.
I'm fully vaccinated and ventilate the shop regularly. Please wear a mask if you are not vaccinated. If you are sick with a cold or other malady, I will reschedule your appointment at the earliest reasonable time.
