Please contact us for your free repair or restoration consultation. Violin Cracks. By admin. January 27 So Many Cracks This poor old violin had seen better days. A past repairman caused many micro cracks when the top was forcefully removed.


The repair that had been done, a center seam crack that was shimmed, has now failedas well as most of the micro cracks have now become full blown cracks. We began by just taking things a part to see how much damage was really there. The more we dugthe more we found. 14 cracks with a total distance of 39.5 inches!!! Roughly 30 cleats, an eyebrow patch and a sound post plate were needed to get the top back together.

Also, the end block was split in two. The break was clean, so we decided to re-glue it rather than to replace it to help keep costs down. In the end this is a great little violin that will make the owners happy for years to come.
