Setup & Regulation

‹Return to Previous Page


The basic setup of an instrument regulates fine details making it easy to play or learn on. If these things are not or poorly done your playing experience becomes hard.
Read more about setup in our blog for deeper understanding.

We setup all violin type instruments The work done on cheap or high end instruments is the same but the added fittings and strings differ:

  1. Setup with original factory fittings and strings is the cheaper option for those who wish to improve the experience but wish to wait with the added cost of better strings and fittings until you know if lad or lass is committed.
  2. Setup with better strings and fittings is the better of the options because the original strings from China are largely best for cutting cheese. The fittings used here are all A grade woods and help with the sound ass well.

Once you have selected the type of setup details that you wish for we arrange for a courier to collect it from you, get it done and send it back to you to have a sound playing experience.

  1. Frikkie

    Svend performed a full service, setup and regulation of my 16 year old cello. My cello feels brand new after the service and its sound has improved significantly. I would recommend Svend for any repairs or service of your instrument given his attention to detail and delivery of a superior service within a reasonable period of time.
