Repairs and maintenance

At het Strijkershuis we have decades of experience repairing and maintaining classic bowed instruments. Feel free to contact us for regular maintenance as well as more complex repairs.
Common procedures include replacing strings, adjusting the bridge and/or soundpost, adjusting or lubricating the tuning pegs, gluing open joints, and rehairing bows.

For small actions like replacing strings or correcting a bridge, feel free to drop by during opening hours without an appointment.
For more complex repairs or several smaller issues, it would be better to make an appointment.

If you wish for work to be completed within a certain timeframe, please give us notice in advance.
