Instrument Set-up,
Re-string and Repair Centre

Here at Strum & Bass, we offer servicing on acoustic and electric guitars, bass guitars, saxophones and clarinets and a variety of others, so please contact us.

Our most popular service is a basic guitar re-string which we can usually do the same day. We also provide guitar set-ups and minor repairs such as jack input sockets, nut and bridge saddle replacements and soldering.

Re-String Options

Restring Image

A simple restring is the cheapest way to make your instrument sound and feel better, but we can also provide the following extra services at a small additional cost:

  • Coated Strings: Instead of standard strings we will use Nanoweb coated strings which provide 3-5 times the tone life of normal strings and also a much better feel with reduced finger squeak.
  • Polish + Oiling: We will scrub, clean and polish your instrument to the best of our abilities and apply lemon oil to the fingerboard to clean and hydrate the wood.
  • Fret Polish: We will polish up old rusty frets so that they're shiny and sparkling like new.
  • Intonation Adjustment: We will check for good tuning when playing up the neck and adjust where neccessary.
