Dots hosts two instrument repairers:
All our repairers ensure that every instrument at Dots is in top form before it leaves the shop.
Brass and woodwind instrument repairs need to be quarantined for at least 72 hours before Dragan will approach it. Please drop off your instrument at the shop where it will remain for 3 days before being tended to.
Once the instrument is repaired, we'll let you know when it is ready to be picked up. Options of further quarantining the instrument is at the discretion of the owner.
Please be prepared for the extra time before we can get your instrument back to you.
Sadly, we no longer have Jonathan Derbyshire as our luthier as he has decided to move away from instrument repairs.
Rob does guitar set-ups, restringing, and raising or lowering action. He is able to do some violin and cello repairs so check with us first.
Dragan ensures consistent air flow, pad servicing, valve lubrication and upgrading of internals to all our woodwind and brass instruments.
All our repairers are seasoned restorers and would be happy to assess and appraise an instrument. Just drop the instrument off at the shop and we'll get back to you with an estimate. Please follow the links below for details of common repairs we carry out.
