Hi, I’m Brad. I love repairing violins and other stringed instruments, and enjoy helping folks afford to keep their instrument repaired and adjusted, so I keep my prices very reasonable.
I learned to repair and restore violins during a month-long course with Hans J. Nebel at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts in the summer of 2002. That month with Hans was really all I needed, having been working with wooden models and other projects for many years. I had been playing the violin for about eight years at that time.
I live in Spanish Springs, and have my repair workshop there, but that’s a long drive for most people, so I’m setting up a satellite workshop at Muzic Fuze to make things easier on everybody. Tim Lake has a great music store and is always happy to take in instruments for me.
