Over the past two decades, Bridgewood & Neitzert have repaired and re-baroqued a number of violins and violas for me, as well as making bespoke tailpieces and pegs. Their knowledge, fine craftsmanship and attention to detail is second to none. Most recently I brought them a shattered hardwood tailpiece (original to an 1807 JG Hamm viola) that had pulled apart from the accumulated strain of two centuries of use. I thought it probably beyond all hope. Remarkably, after delicate patchwork, it is now better than new and quite seamlessly repaired. They can work miracles!
