Professional Mandolin Dulcimer and Ukulele Repair

Professional Mandolin and Dulcimer Repair Our mandolin repair and dulcimer repair technicians are highly trained artisans. We look at all aspects of an instrument and assess its operational qualities to ensure, upon its completion, that the instrument is in the absolute best condition possible. Our artisans pay attention to details such as string condition, machine head operation for smoothness of tuning, neck adjustment and string height issues, tuning, proper bridge and nut fitting, and fine wood conditioning.

Many shops tend to overlook certain parts of the repair process. They consider some operations that we perform on a routine basis redundant. NO PART of the repair of your instrument should simply be overlooked. We thoroughly examine the instrument and assess completely anything that might need to be done to put it into top-notch condition. We call with a complete estimate BEFORE we do any work so that you are not confused about what we are doing! When we are done with the repair your instrument is carefully prepared so that nothing changes during shipment. The mandolin or dulcimer is then packed securely and returned to you in a timely manner.
