Many musicians feel that a violin shop is only as good as its repair and restoration workshop. The great violin shops of the past were not only famous for their selection of instruments and bows but for the quality of their repair and restoration workshop. The names of the heads of these workshops are almost as famous as the shop itself. We are very proud of our repair and restoration shop. Headed by Haide Lin, our shop does only the highest quality repair work, whether it is simply gluing of an open seam or a highly complex restoration of a fine old Italian violin. Much of the reputation of Ifshin Violins is based on the quality of work done in our repair shop. Our craftsmen are violinmakers with an average of 26 years experience in violin making and restoration. If your violin, viola, cello, or bass is in need of repair, bring it to us. We are sure you will be delighted with the results.
