Who we are
Alpert & Kallinen is a full-service string instrument workshop in Helsinki dedicated to friendly service and work of the highest quality.
We offer set-up, repair and restoration of violin-family instruments, and bow rehairing and repair services.
We also focus on making new instruments and bows, and developing appreciation for quality new instruments, as well as learning from the great history and traditions of violinmaking.
Alpert & Kallinen is the cooperative workshop of two entrepreneurs, Mayim Alpert and Lauri Kallinen, who work together for the passion of the craft and the satisfaction of their customers. Welcome!
