Luthier - Repairer
I am an experienced luthier with over 20 years of experience. I set up my first workshop in Penryn in 2001, having graduated from London Guildhall University with a Bsc Hons in Musical Instrument Technology. I passionately design and make violins and other bowed string instruments. I provide high quality violin and bow repair services to musicians of all levels, from beginners to professionals. I also a range of reconditioned second hand instruments in all sizes and from student instruments to those for professional players
"I've had various violin repairs from Hannah, from small breaks to catastrophic disasters, and she's always delivered my baby back to me in beautiful condition! I can't recommend her enough." - Ben Sutcliffe (People's String Foundation)
Having your instrument playing at it's best can have a huge effect on maintaining yours or your child's enthusiasm for playing. It can even alleviate the health risks presented by a badly setup instrument. Hannah will undertake almost any job, from minor tweaks to full restoration projects. Courtesy instruments are available while work is carried out.
"Took in a sad, very mucked about fiddle, to have the action height, fingerboard, soundpost and bridge sorted out. Received back a beautifully playing instrument. Thanks to Hannah." - Chris Ward
“I have had my double bass set up here. Very warm and friendly atmosphere. Great quality of work and very reasonably priced! Highly recommended!" - Jon Dyer
