Managing Director – The Contrabass Shoppe Ltd (UK)

“I am very pleased with the quality of the service I received from Jeroen Bruynooghe over the past 18 months. The work included everything from complicated assemblies, sleeve splices, varnish retouching to challenging total rebuilds. How precisely Jeroen acquired such a complete know-how at that age, with a quality of execution that I have rarely seen, is still a bit of a mystery to me. I can only assume that it is a combination of first class learning, a lot of work, and a good dose of talent. For the future, I hope that Jeroen wants to continue to accept our work, so that his professional approach, his enthusiasm to learn about instruments and his positive attitude completes the saga of The Contrabass Shoppe”.
