To avoid disappointment, always make an appointment!

We advise all our customers to call or email us to make an appointment rather than just turning up in the workshop. This is to ensure that we schedule the time needed to assist our customers with whatever their requirement is, from choosing and purchasing new instruments to service consultations. There are also some few occasions where the workshop may be closed during our normal working day and we would not want any customer to arrive to find the door locked.
