Retuning & Intonation

James uses modern analysis techniques alongside vintage tuning equipment with unparalleled accuracy to identify key areas needed for improvement, from there small alterations are made to the tone-holes by hand then checked for accuracy until tuning is at it's optimum.

James is able to check and retune instruments as requested. Bringing an instrument lower in pitch can be a time consuming process often requiring differing approaches. The processes required to bring an instrument lower in pitch are complex and varied. 

Alterations to intonation also require differing approaches which are dependent upon the severity of the problem. In many cases increasing intonation accuracy can help reduce volume differences between octaves, therefore increasing overall instrument performance.
