Repair Shop

Dusty Strings’ repair shop has earned the trust of many as the Pacific Northwest’s go-to place for the expert care of fretted stringed instruments. Any instrument that potentially needs repair must be evaluated by our luthiers. At this time, evaluation appointments are being booked on a month-to-month basis. Most repairs can be completed within a few weeks of the initial evaluation. Please call the shop during the last week of the month to get on the calendar for the following month (e.g. we will begin scheduling appointments for September during the week of August 29th).

Repairs on Dusty Strings harps and hammered dulcimers are arranged through our instrument building workshop. For harp or hammered dulcimer repair inquiries, please click here.

Instrument Restringing

For restringing of a guitar, mandolin, banjo, or ukulele, please call us at (206) 634-1662 and schedule a time to drop your instrument off with us. Instrument restringing is performed by our expert retail sales staff and includes inspection for possible repair needs and light cleaning. Restrings are performed on a next-business day basis, with a minimum labor fee of $30.
