Trusted Luthiers in Kent, UK

December 25, 2019, 4:37 AM ·
My violin needs some attention - general check-up, new bridge, perhaps some shooting, and proper setup. I'm looking for a luthier in Kent, UK. Suggestions welcome.

Philippe Briand is a violin maker living in Canterbury - a really nice guy but I'm not sure how much general luthery work he accepts. And I nearly forgot Andrew and Anneleen Fairfax in Tunbridge Wells; for many years Andrew worked as a maker and restorer for J&A Beare's

December 25, 2019, 11:10 AM · I don't know a Camberley in Kent!
December 25, 2019, 12:55 PM · Many thanks. I'll contact Philippe Briand and Tim Craig. Could Camberley be a typo or automiscorrect for Canterbury?
December 26, 2019, 9:42 AM · Camberley is in Surrey--borders on Kent.
December 26, 2019, 11:40 AM · Thanks for location of Camberley. It's certainly close enough to where i am.
December 30, 2019, 5:54 AM · I too am looking for a Luthier in Kent. Let me know how you get on.

Thanks
