If you want to book your instrument in for repair then either,


phone: 0191 -447 -4342

and we will book you in.

If you have a repair already at the shop we will contact you when it is done and make an appointment for you to pick it up.

We repair all Stringed Instruments at Curvy Sounds and we have a Wind instrument repairer who will pick up the wind instruments from us one week and returns it the following week. 

At Curvy Sounds we can guarantee an open ,friendly and good value service.We will always do our best to repair the existing instrument without resort to expensive new parts,whenever we can. We also set up and polish your guitar with every job-returning it to you looking and sounding the best it has ever been.

We do, restringing and tuning, set ups, fret work, body work, electronics, truss rods and more.

We can also customise your instrument .We do inlays, mosaics, body reshaping and more.

Make your instrument unique .Customise it to suit you! We aim to realise your dreams!

(Sorry to disappoint, but we do not do resprays or revarnishing anymore as we havn't got the proper ventilation.We do not repair dents in the varnish either as this is incredibly time consuming and rarely very effective- you can always see the mark unless you revarnish the whole instrument.)
