The condition, playability and value of a fine old instrument are indisputably linked. It is critical that the instrument be maintained in a way that preserves original materials, characteristics and finish. To this end, invasive repair techniques as well as aggressive cleaning, excessive retouching or polishing of delicate varnishes is to be avoided.

J.S. Holmes Fine Violins offers responsible conservation and restoration for fine stringed instruments. A conservative philosophy and approach ensure that the integrity of the original is preserved while the physical stability is maintained.

If you are considering a restoration, I invite you to contact me to discuss the project.
