Maintenance, Repairs & Custom Builds
Serving the Rye and Hastings area, East Sussex
True Notes is a small independent company, with our workshop based in the historic town of Rye, East Sussex.
We undertake many kinds of instrument repairs and servicing. Work ranges from day to day guitar set ups, fret work and neck repairs, to more larger restoration projects on Drangyens, Harps, Dulcimers and even Dombiras.
We love all types of musical instrument and would be happy to discuss any issues you may be having with yours.
Attention to fine detail
A correct set up is crucial to the playability of your instrument and your performance.
Before taking on any work, we like to discuss how you play and what you wish from the instrument itself. This is probably the most important information for us, as every instrument and every player requires individual attention.
Our services include
Adjusting the settings of your instrument for better playability.
Levelling uneven frets to stop buzzing and replacing worn frets that can’t be levelled.
Nut and Saddle Making
Hand cutting nuts and saddles, specifically to match your instrument and string gauge.
Troubleshooting, repairs, re-wires and pickup winding
