Maxwell did a superb job repairing and restoring my 1620 Maggini violin after several cracks in the top appeared. It is always scary to have the top off, but the instrument came back sounding as strong and colorful as ever. Some registers are even better.”

“When I slipped on ice and damaged my rare Italian violin, Maxwell not only repair it, he made it sound better than it had ever sounded before. Furthermore, Maxwell handled this stressful time for me with kindness, care and a sense of humor. Maxwell is now my trusted luthier who I entrust with all my instrument needs and send my students to.”
