Hi! Thanks for stopping by and Nice to meet you! The String Workshop is located in the beautiful mountains of scenic, historic Ogden, Utah, just a short drive north of Salt Lake City. We service all of the Ogden-Layton-Clearfield area, and we also see many folks from Orem, Provo, Moab, Brigham City, Logan, Evanston, and Idaho. Our experience ranges from playing, teaching, composing, recording, performing, conducting, repair, custom shop work, set-up, buyer assist, retail, importing,  and many aspects of music. What I love the most about the Music trade: is working as a string instrument craftsman (Luthier) for all kinds of repairs, adjustments, upgrades, and set ups: Guitars, Bluegrass-Folk and Violins.

We have broad experience in string instruments and during our years of operation, have interacted as  an authorized service technician for several name brand manufacturers (guitars and violins). We have serviced thousands of string instruments, through a 45+ years career; from many famous makers, genres, cultures, histories and backgrounds.

We do Luthier work for individuals, dealers, repair shops, sellers, collectors, studios, schools, teachers, and students.

If you would like to have an evaluation, repair, upgrade, set-up, or lessons, on your instrument, please contact me for an appointment and we can arrange to meet at my shop. I occasionally travel to do volunteer work or training,  and may be away for a week or two. I do luthier work when I am here. These are the things I love to do. I will be happy to meet you and evaluate your instrument.
