The Repair Zone
 ( has been serving stringed instrument players of all stripes in the San Diego area for over 30 years.  Join us as luthier Fred Marotta takes us on a virtual tour of the repair shop, and lets us in on some of his “dos and don’ts” for instrument builders—tips that can help us keep our customers, and the repair shops, happier.  It’s been quite a few years since we’ve had a repair person speak to the group; this should be an educational meeting!

Date:  Saturday, May 7, 2022

Time:  1:00 PM

Location:  Online via Zoom (sign up for email newsletter to receive Zoom invitation)

P.S. For those of you getting tired of the Zoom meeting format, take heart!  Plans are in the works to make our next meeting, in August, our first in-person gathering in two years!  Stay tuned for details. 

Upcoming Meetings

Our regular, quarterly meeting schedule has us meeting on the first Saturday in February, May, August, and November, unless otherwise noted.  Additional meetings and field trips may be added, but these are the four guaranteed meetings for the year.
