Hardanger
Fiddle Repair
and Restoration
Over the past few years, I have done a quite a lot of
repair and restoration of Hardanger fiddles.  Here are
a few pictures.

From a recent customer:

    I love what you did with my fiddle. I love how smooth and
    solid everything  looks, how you filled the holes and repaired
    the fingerboard.

    It plays and sounds great. Especially the G string is strong,
    and some tunes with difficult fingerings on the G-string that I
    could not play in the past - now I can!  I got it Saturday and
    played it for a dance in on Sunday and again yesterday night.
    SO much fun.

    I would definitely like to meet you when you come here next
    time and push around the sound post. That will be fun, and
    after playing it a while I will know better where we should do
    something about the balance.

    For now, thanks so much.
