Luthier Workshop

We take care of all kinds of repairs, changes or improvements that your musical instruments may need. We make budgets totally free and without commitment for any type of repair, restoration or tuning in instruments.

Each instrument has different needs, so if you want to receive advice on what your instrument needs, get in touch with us for a free evaluation, which can be done both at your home if it is a very large instrument or in our store in the case of smaller instruments.

We have an ``express workshop line`` in our shop in Colmenar Viejo where most daily tasks are carried out, such as changing strings, placing strings instruments soul, cleaning wind instruments, etc. And for larger jobs we have our warehouse-workshop in the Tetouan Zone (Madrid).

This workshop usually serves the majority of music schools and theaters in the Community of Madrid, as well as multiple public and private entities nationwide.

TUNING

We tune up any type of instrument, specializing in pianos. The tuning is a complex process that, carried out regularly by a Technician / Tuner, will allow you to enjoy the maximum performance of the instrument. This technique consists of modifying the tension of the strings, so that they vibrate in the right frequencies, being therefore the resulting music pleasant to the ear.

MAINTENANCE

The set-up of the instruments must be carried out regularly. For example, in the case of the piano, it would be good to do it once a year at least, although ideally every six months if it is used intensively. This work consists in refining and reviewing the machinery, making the necessary adjustments in terms of calibration and general regulation. In this way you can enjoy 100% of the instrument. This is a very precise process that must always be carried out by a professional, since if it is done by an inexperienced person, there is a serious risk of causing irreparable damage or very difficult repair.

THE TEAM

We have 6 specialists in their sector who work as an interdisciplinary team, with a wide individual experience transmitted from generation to generation, both in formulas and techniques, which translate into quality work and exquisite artisan taste.

LUTHIER: It is the person who is dedicated to the construction of musical instruments of strings -plucked or rubbed- with mast, being extensive to the constructors of key, wind and percussion. In the Renaissance and for a long time it was difficult to distinguish between builders and Luthiers, since the musicians were the ones who made their own instruments. Due to the interpretative demands of the XVI century some craftsmen decided to perfect the instruments, specializing from that moment on instruments of strings. In our workshop we have a luthier with three generations of experience, which gives us the security and professionalism necessary to entrust any task with total confidence.

Our organ tuner has a great experience in organs and harpsichords. He regularly tunes up prestigious organs such as those at the Monastery of El Escorial or the Cathedral of Almudena, among others.

PIANO TUNER: Piano tuning is the act of making adjustments to the tensions of a piano's strings to correctly align the intervals between their tones so that the instrument is tuned. A good piano tuning requires an evaluation of the interaction between the notes, and must be done by experienced professionals.
Our piano tuner is highly qualified, since his family has been developing this work in a vocational and professional manner for several generations.

Some great pianos tuned by him are those of:

- Isabel de Farnesio Cultural Center, Aranjuez.
- Escuela Superior de Canto de Madrid, for more than 7 years.
