Welcome to our workshop, a meeting place for string players in Lausanne and the surrounding area.
Maybe you own a violin, a viola, a cello or a bow that has
suffered some damage ? Do not hesitate to bring it to our
workshop. Without any charge or obligation we will make
estimate of what it will cost to repair it, and also let you
know whether we think the work is worthwhile.
Bringing damaged instruments back to life is one of our
main activities. This may involve the repair of a simple

WE SELL, BUY AND APPRAISE
We sell violins, violas, cellos and bows within a wide price range, allowing
us to meet your needs whether you are novice or a highly accomplished
musician. New or centuries old, their origins are multiple : France,
Germany, Italy, Switzerland, only to mention the most common. Before
putting one up for sale we therefore carefully overhaul and tune it to
bring out the best sound it can deliver. To help you choose the right
instrument, we have a separate sound-proof room allowing you to
play without being disturbed
We also regularly buy instruments and put them up for sale
on commission in our workshop.
Appraisal is also part of our services, whether to
determine the insurance value of your instruments and
bows or simply to let you know what they are worth.
