The Peg Box is run by our very own luthier (and double bass teacher) David Davies. You can find him on the top floor of the Academy.

For all string instruments, David can offer servicing, instrument set-ups, repairs, student instruments and even bespoke commissions. He can also order and fit stringed instrument accessories including bows, cases, strings, chin and shoulder rests, wolf note arrestors and rosins.

David studied stringed instrument making and repair at the internationally-renowned Newark School of Violin Making. Whilst there, he was trained in the Cremonese tradition of lutherie, working with the same traditional techniques and practices that were originally pioneered by the Italian masters; Stradivari, Guarneri and the Amati family.
