Repair and Restoration

Until further notice, we are not accepting instruments for restoration unless purchased from Sola Violins.

We have a backlog of major restoration projects and also need to free up more time to maintain and restore our growing inventory of vintage violins.

Don’t hesitate to reach out for routine maintenance, adjustments and set-ups.

We’ll still be carving bridges, fitting soundposts, installing pick-ups, rehairing bows, etc.

Thanks for your understanding.

Bow Rehairing

Keeping your bow in good shape is just as important as taking care of your instrument.

Having your bow rehaired is one of the easiest ways to improve your tone, and most players have their bow rehaired annually.  

Pickup Installation

Need a pickup on your violin, cello or bass? When installed properly, a pickup will not detract from the sound of your instrument.  

For violins, we generally recommend L.R. Baggs or Fishman pickups. For bass and cello, we keep Realist pickups in stock but can special order most brands.
