Such a lovely shop. Beautiful instruments to choose from, and nice friendly service.
We had our son’s violin repaired here. They did a great job, very quickly.

As a professional cellist living in Florida, I've finally found a first-class luthier to keep my instrument healthy! I spent a few hours with Nikolai just the other day and he was able to quickly diagnose and repair a strident buzz which had made my beautiful fiddle sound like a prepared piano. Now the cello is in tip top shape again. I'll make the long drive to WPB whenever necessary in the future.
As well, I played a number of his cellos while waiting and was eminently impressed at their quality: all had warm, full tone, with great ease of execution, and I will definitely direct friends and colleagues to consider them.
Thank you for everything and I'll look forward to our next meeting!

Tambovsky Strings provides high quality services for string players in the Palm Beach area. Nikolai is a distinguished violin maker with profound knowledge for tone and projection. I recommend him to colleagues and students for his outstanding workmanship and personal integrity.

Tambovsky Strings provides great quality instruments and accessories, and Mr. Tambovsky is a very knowledgable and helpful especially for me as a local string teacher.

My violin pegs were worn and kept slipping every time I tried to tune my violin. He shaped and drilled new pegs I bought off Amazon and installed a new sound post. I didn't even know I needed a new sound post, but my violin sounds richer and fuller thanks to him and Alexander. (Always call before going. They work by appointment only. Their work place is on the seedier part of town alongside a stretch of warehouses, but don't let that scare you because it's worth it.)

I bought two violins there. They worked so well for my kids. Mr. Tambovsky is very professional and answered all my questions. I highly recommend this place.

Mr. Tambovsky did an amazing job on two of my cellos. On one of them he changed the bridge and the sound post and somehow made my cello sound fuller and brighter than ever before. My second cello he essentially rebuilt, from ground up and that instrument has served me well for several years now. This luthier has eliminated wolf both my instrument. I am pleasantly surprised at how well my cello sounds after being at his shop. I am considering buying one of the cellos Mr. Tambovsky currently made, I am in the process of trying it out, and that cello seems to be a very promising instrument with great tone, fast response and overall ease of playing. I strongly recommend his services to any string player.
