TESTIMONIALS

Mr. James Park is very professional in accommodating parents with exceptional instruments as he services our academy. As a violinist himself, he realizes how important sound is in the tonal development of each child, therefore making sure his instruments are well adjusted and of the highest quality. He is always eager to equip the child with an instrument to help the student reach his highest potential. In addition to his rental program at our school, I recommend his expertise in bow repair.

Director, Betty Haag Academy of Music

I have had my 1787 Gagliano worked on by Mr. James Park and have been entirely satisfied with the quality of his work. I find Mr. Park to be a meticulous and dedicated repairman in all aspects. Also very helpful is the fact that being a player himself, he is able to bring this perspective to his work as well as being able to understand first hand the needs of his clients. He also provides, in my opinion, one of the best bow rehair in Chicago. I have no reservations in recommending him to your attention.
