Expert repair and adjustment are performed by the Burak workshops. Entrusted with some of the finest old Italian instruments in the area, we are specialists in maximizing the potential of any instrument. Special attention is given to the existing repair and adjustment parameters with an in depth analysis performed to determine the appropriate course of action needed. An instrument centuries old cannot be addressed without regard for the health of the structure. Old repairs, cracks, and patchwork must be secure before attempting any changes in neck, fingerboard, bridge and soundpost adjustments or procedures. The tension level that an older instrument is accustomed to often dictates response characteristics and eveness string to string. Changing a bridge, soundpost, or string alters the vibrational system and so, changes should be introduced gradually and judged over a period of weeks not days!
