"It was a pleasure meeting Mr. Bischofberger. He took the time to discuss my concerns about the 2 violins and cello that I brought in and handled my family instruments with care, going above and beyond. He even shared a look at his copy of The Violin Makers of the United States book with me showing both of our grandfathers listed. Pretty neat to actually meet someone who had met my grandfather way-back-when! Grandpa's first cello is now back in playing condition and will be making music again! Thank you so much Henry!" - S.
