Welcome to our website

Bridgewood & Neitzert started as makers of lutes, viols and baroque violins and have built up an extensive knowledge of the development of the violin from its beginnings to now.

Early and period instruments were not taken seriously for a long time but we have always taken them seriously. We have spent many years acquiring detailed knowledge and experience on how baroque and classical instrument work and how to adjust them to sound as good as possible.

We undertake the whole range of repairs and restorations on instruments from the more common and frequent repairs through to more extensive restoration and reconstruction.

As well as violins, violas, cellos, basses and bows, we also undertake work on early and period instruments including lutes, viols and viola d’amores.

Other Services include

Sale on commission - this is often the best way to maximise returns when selling your instrument.
