Repairs and the importance of good maintenance 2

 

Here is a short list of the most common problems on the most common instruments:

Sometimes an instrument needs the ornamentation restored, for this and most other problems I have accumulated lots of small parts, accessories and ornamentations.

I have also worked on instruments from Japan, Afghanistan, Africa, South East Asia. So if you have any problems with your non Indian musical instrument, please enquire if I can help you or not.

Please try to remember the following:
To keep your instrument in good working order, that sounds great and is a pleasure to play, it is advisable to have regular checks. If you play every day then once every 3 months, and if you play on an irregular basis once or twice a year should be sufficient.
