What is an appraisal?

Appraisals are most frequently written for insurance purposes. Our luthiers will inspect your instrument and bow in detail and assess the current retail market replacement value.

All appraisals will include a detailed physical description and measurements as well as any other pertinent information that may affect its value or help as an identifier in case of loss or theft.

Appraisals are on an appointment-only basis to ensure that our knowledgeable luthiers are in the shop to offer you the most accurate information.

A written appraisal is offered on one instrument and one bow. 

The cost will be 1% of the combined value  ($15 minimum - $300 maximum) + $45 clerical fees.
