Your violins, violas and cellos are in the best of hands with us. We will repair your instrument and bow, optimise their sound adjustment and evaluate them for insurance reasons. Another of our specialities is the restoration of rare high-value instuments. In addition, we offer a large selection of string instruments and bows for sale.

Our bright open plan of our historical factory building affords excellent glimpses into the various working spaces. This provides the perfect atmosphere for connecting with our clients.

Yves Gateau and Daniel Kogge have been at the heart of KOGGE GATEAU Berlin for over 20 years. Over the years, we have built up a team of excellent luthiers who have mastered innovative restoration techniques in addition to the traditional, established methods.
