The DoubleBass Workshop


From glueing open seams, to completely restoring older pedigree instruments, Tom takes pleasure in providing the highest quality work for double basses.


Tom has done a number of jobs on my prized old French bass, from minor set up adjustments, to repairs (neck broken off by an airline and a nasty crack from a cello spike), to a major two-and-a-half-year long restoration of the top. His set ups are excellent, but the complicated repair and restoration jobs he has done for me have been nothing short of astonishing.His attention to detail is remarkable and his ability and craftsmanship with basses is second to none. We are very lucky to have a double bass specialist of this calibre here in Ireland!
