Set-up and Repairs
Our customers are amazed at what we can do for the playability and sound of a bass! We can work with you to improve your bass set up – from resetting your sound post, reshaping or installing a new nut or bridge, installing new strings, or giving your fingerboard one of our precision dressings. We also specialize in resetting necks, repairing cracks and installing new fingerboards, bass bars and fingered C-extensions. Whatever your playing needs, we listen carefully to you, our customer, and work hard to help you get the most out of your instrument without blowing your budget.
Our basic philosophy: we don’t rush anything we do. We give each job the time it requires to be done right… whether it’s an old Kay or an older Italian, a 1/2 size Sam Shen SB80 or new Thomas Martin. Bob is an experienced, highly skilled luthier, specializing in double bass set-up and repair. As an experienced professional bassist, he understands the real value of a finely crafted, perfectly set-up double bass.

Due to its size, the double Bass can seem a bit intimidating for those new to the instrument. Our goal is eliminate that concern—-and get you started on what will hopefully become a lifelong love of the double Bass.
