Bromsgrove Strings prides itself on carrying out all repair and restoration work on its own premises.  Clients can be assured of the highest standards of expertise and craftmanship.

Chris Howell has been repairing and restoring instruments since 1978 and is an approved repairer for Allianz Musical Instrument Insurance (formerly British Reserve).  He is also a professional 'modern' and 'period' cellist and is therefore accustomed to individual client's requests for optimum sound production and comfort of play.

Advice can be given on all aspects of repair and restoration work from minor adjustments, such as bridge and sound post fitting, to major restorations, such as neck grafts and sound post patching.

The costing of any repair and restoration work depends on the labour and materials required for each individual instrument.

Bromsgrove Strings prides itself on offering clients a personal service to suit their time scale wherever possible.  Estimates for repair can be put in writing on request for the purposes of insurance claims.
