Repairs and restoration are an important part of Viva Violins. There are few problems which cannot be repaired.
Viva Violins – for a professional set-up
A professional set up is essential for any stringed instrument. It cannot be stressed enough that your bridge, soundpost and tailpiece should be fitted by an expert in order to get the best out of your violin, viola or cello.
Free instrument MOT
Ask for a free instrument MOT and to keep your instrument in top condition don’t forget to book a yearly service.
A new soundpost, bridge and set of strings will make your instrument sing again.
