With few exceptions, any string or accessory currently manufactured can be supplied quickly, together with recommendation as to what may be found ideally suited. Experimenting with strings and other accessories can quickly prove costly for a player, so being able to offer assistance based on various factors and and past feedback from musicians saves significant time and unnecessary expense.

The workshop specialises in this area and offers gratis assessment for any instrument to ascertain as to whether any factor/s can be improved. If the adjustment/s are wished and the difference is not noticeable to the musician, no charge is made and the adjustment reversed.
