McCutcheon Repair is proud to have two violin luthiers on staff, Richard Ervin and Jim Roetter. Both were trained by Peter Horn of Cleveland, Ohio, who is a graduate of the violin school in Mittenwald Germany. Richard and Jim have worked together as luthiers for 30 years. During this time, they designed and develop a training course for the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technician (NAPBIRT). Over the years they have taught 10 sold out training classes at the national training center for NAPBIRT in Normal, Illinois. Their expertise covers the full range of repairs and restorations.
For the more discerning musician, we offer custom tuned bridges. These fine bridges are made from the high quality aged maple stock.
