Is your guitar not playing well? Has your instrument been sitting still for a long time or do you play very intensively? Are you unsure about the set-up of your bass, double bass or guitar?

Whether you are a novice player or a seasoned musician, we ensure that the basic quality of each instrument is as high as possible. Feel free to come by and let us take a look at your instrument. With luck you can get a nice cup of coffee but always honest advice.
