To last a lifetime, a fine instrument needs periodic maintenance and occasional repairs.  Especially for students who are first learning to play, an instrument in good repair can make all the difference in the enjoyment of learning.

At Henry Bischofberger Violins, through examining and listening to your instrument, Henry can determine if it needs maintenance before any issues become serious.  When it comes to maintenance and repairs, the sooner an irregularity is identified and taken care of, the better it is for the life of the instrument.

With Henry’s expertise, experience, and fully equipped repair shop, he can skillfully repair and maintain your violin, viola, cello, bass or bow.

If you have an instrument in need of complete restoration, Henry would be happy to look at it and discuss its needs with you.  Some instruments are worth restoring and others may not be.  He will give you an honest assessment before beginning your project.

Customer Feedback . . .

"I have had the great pleasure of knowing Henry for 7 years. Over that time we have purchased instruments and bows as well as having repair work done. His expert knowledge has enabled us to select the perfect instrument and bows for our daughter. We were never rushed into making a decision and at all times were shown the utmost courtesy and kindness. To have a professional violin maker on the Eastside is wonderful. To have that person be Henry is even better. I would never dream of going anywhere else." - Karen Chapman
