Shops in Philadelphia

Recommended Posts

I would say Christopher Germain is the person to talk to in Philly. He may be too busy but would have good advice for sure. 

 

 I have found the Fred Oster shop to be quite rude in the past and would steer people away as a matter of principle.

One time I tried an instrument out from Oster and I asked if there were any cracks.  He said no. When it showed up it had a repaired crack.  I called him up about it and he said oh that little thing?  But I ended up keeping it and actually selling it at a profit a couple of years later.  As for their varnish touch up...not a clue.  Why get varnish touch up anyway?

Hey guys,

 

I happened to have done a little work at both shops you are talking about and can garantee that both places have a standard of work that is beyond excellency. When I was there some 5 years ago, there was a shop in town with a less desirable standard and I would reccomend you stick with one of the two above.
