Excellent repairs to my mandolin.

Geoffrey is a gem. Combine, courtesy, craftsmanship and attention to detail and this just about sums him up. My whole experience of dealing with him was an absolute pleasure. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone requiring a first class job being done.

What an absolute pleasure to have a craftsman mend my daughters violin. Geoff is utterly professional, communication was great by phone and e mail and he also went above and beyond on the repair. Highly recommended and worth the drive from S11.

A man who is immersed in his craft!

Geoffrey kindly fitted us in at short notice to reposition the sound-post and adjust the bridge on my daughter’s violin. He was courteous and professional, taking time to explain how to better care for the instrument going forward. Not only was the work carried out with care but he took time to give the violin a thorough clean and tune up! I have no hesitation in recommending his services.

Repairing a sliding G peg in a violin
5
Booked an appointment to sort out a sliding G peg, and he was more than accommodating in booking an appointment that suited our busy schedule. When we got there he immediately started looking at the violin and repairing it to the best of his ability and offered advice on ways to look after the violin in the best way possible due to it being an older violin. More than pleased with the efficiency of the service we received. Will definitely be returning in future for any repairs or services.
