Cello Scroll Repair

The Scollard "Inner Sleve" Scroll Repair Method

Here is a cello scroll repair. Not only did the scroll break off the neck but there were fractures on the checks of the scroll where you could tell the varnish had cracked. Although I could barly get the scroll to cheaks to move I didn't force them apart and just worked as much glue as possible into the fractures. Other shops wanted to do a neck graft. Here are the steps I used for my method.

Oops, I can't find the before photo,

but this broken bass scroll shows how

this cello scroll was broken.

Since this was a bad break, It needed two layers of formed fiber and two screwed in pins under the nut. I believe the other shop's estimate was because they didn't want to repair the scroll unless they did a neck graft.
