Hello, welcome to my site. I now live/work, repairing mandolins and related instruments. What started as a hobby became a passion. I decided at the outset to record my passion pictorially for the benefit of others with similar interests. I hope you will find my site useful.
|I sell my restored mandolins more or less at cost and some other instruments. I undertake private mandolin repairs, and also occasionally buy broken instruments. I also occasionally build new instruments in the mandolin family, plus a few others, to order. Not building/repairing currently due to covid, lockdown and moving house.|
Instr. Care looking after it..
