    Hi List,

    Looks like my carved upright has developed a crack in the ribs and I'd like to have it repaired sooner than later. I know there are several repair shops in cleveland, ohio. Does anyone on the list have any personal experience with any of them that they would like to share, good or bad?

    I was thinking of taking it to Zaret and Sons or maybe Horst. Anyone have any experience with either?

    Thanks

    There is a luthier named Reese Williams - (440) 333-5984. He's up by the Cleveland airport. He did all of the work on my 1907 Hawkes Panormo as well as my wife's 200 year old violin while we lived in Northeast Ohio. He's an excellent craftsman.
