I purchased an old viola and bow on Ebay to use for outdoor gigs and took both to Everjoy Music for evaluation and repair/refurbishment. Now the bow is nicer than any I've had over the past 30 years, and I have a feeling I'll be using the viola as my main gig instrument and putting my Mittenwald into the closet! What I love about Patrick is that he is honest and willing to work with any level of instrument & definitely not an instrument snob. He spent hours upgrading, refurbishing and improving the sound on the viola and it sounds fabulous. I also bought a really nice viola case. Thanks, Patrick!
