McLaughlin Violins
violins • violas • cellos • bows


Most violins, violas and cellos require regular maintenance. McLaughlin Violins specializes in exacting procedures that can usually be done in a day or two after an initial, complimentary evaluation. Instruments must be seen in person for accurate estimates to be given.

Small, insignificant looking cracks can be big problems, and only an in-hand examination can determine the difference. Some jobs are more complex and require longer repair times, often a week or longer, as the situation warrants.

Services include:

Open edge seam gluing
Varnish touch up
Bridge and sound post patch and replacement
Peg repair and replacement
Finger board planing and replacement
Tonal adjustment
Crack repair
