Chris King was first recommended to me by a dealer in London who suggested I was making unnecessary journeys to the capital for work on my violin, when there was an excellent repairer in Cardiff. That was thirty years ago, and since then I have had major work done by him on my 1879 Audinot. He repaired the scroll after an encounter with a frenzied viola player’s “down bow” left a nasty crack. He also restored the varnish on the back after the violin had been left in storage in 100 degree heat at Hong Kong airport, melting it and even fusing it into the case. Both repairs were immaculate. Over the years, Chris and Cecile have always made time to remedy any problems I might have, and we are very lucky in Cardiff to have such a wonderful, friendly service close at hand.
