The ultimate goal is to respond properly to the customer`s needs. Even if you work with high end technology, there is no point without a customerâs satisfaction.
We listen to both the customerâs request through conversation and the voice of the instrument as a professional workman. Then we can propose the best action to both players and instruments. Â
There are no two violins which are identical, as they are made of wood. Bunkyo Gakki realizes this unique quality of instruments.
We handle your instruments paying close attention, examining the context in which the instrument was made. We keep the goal of maintaining the original preservation as the first priority, so as not to destroy the originality of the instrument.
Bunkyo Gakki does not conduct irregular repairs. We know that the best technology is often orthodox in nature, through our years of experience in new instrument production and feedback from players.
Based on standards from European traditions, we perform our work while having consideration for parts which are ususally not touched by customers to reach an overall harmony, and providing workability for technicians later on in case further work is needed in the future.
