I have been a customer
of Bob's for ten years. During that time I've purchased two basses from him.
I take them to the shop a few times a year so Bob and his team can keep them playing and sounding great.
Thanks for everything Bob!
I have never
Just want to tell you
The BVS Team was
The bass sounds so great
that I went back to an earlier string set that I liked: Oliv G (the best sounding g-string out there), Pirazzi D, Spiro Weich A, Spiro Orch E. I stopped using the Oliv and Pirazzi because they wouldn't "speak" before you did your magic, now they sound great. I played a gig last night and it was a real pleasure. The gut/synthetic strings have a stronger fundamental that makes the note "pop" resulting in a more defined quarter note feel.
Bob : Your professional craftsmanship is outstanding!
We just wanted to
thank you for meeting with us and spending time helping Cameron with her bass. She is very happy with the lovely instrument you spent so much time restoring. We think she has a bass that she can cherish and play for the rest of her life. We appreciate your honesty and the high level of knowledge, care and craftsmanship you bring to your work.
Where can I start?
Just a word to say
how much I'm enjoying the bass, sounding better than I ever remember, which is saying something. I'm touched by the evident and thorough care you put into the work, and delighted with the way it looks and feels. I can't keep my hands off it.

Thanks to your set-up,
the Pöllmann now has the sound I expected when I bought it. Three other luthiers couldn’t coax the magic out of the instrument. You did it. Hallelujah! Thanks, Bob.

Thanks again for
your service, it's the best investment I've made yet for my bass. . . I also appreciate your accommodating my travel schedule. . . . You have gained a loyal customer and I'll never hesitate to recommend you.
Bob performed a
first rate restoration on my turn of the century Austrian bass. Bob fixed a nasty hole in the lower bout so well that even I forget it was there! ... Plus, he did a first rate fingerboard dressing. He did all of this and more in a timely manner and at an affordable price! I can not recommend Bob highly enough. All of my repair work goes to Greensboro!!!

If your bass needs
repair or maintainence or if you're shopping for a bass, you need to visit Bob.. He's been working on my instrument since I moved to North Carolina six years ago, and it has never played, looked or sounded better!

Thanks again for that
incredibly timely repair. The bass plays great and sounds huge with the new post and tailpiece…

…I have to tell you
how thrilled I am with the way my Prescott came out of your shop. I also must say your work is as good as any I have seen anywhere in this country. How fortunate we are here in NC to have you cats around. I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work and impeccable skill. Much peace.
