For donkey’s years Mr Purcell has repaired and serviced my old english double bass. It’s the bass I used on the recording of Lou Reed’s ‘Walk on the Wild Side’. Thank you Vince – you’re a wizard.
Vincent has been restoring instruments for my students for years now. He is fast, efficient, generous and honest. I would recommend him to any teacher or performer.
