Studio Pangaro is a full-service string instrument shop specializing in the setup, repair, and restoration of upright bass, cello, and guitar. The shop is located in Davis Square, Somerville MA, with customers across the Boston area.
I’ve been a luthier as long as I’ve been a musician. I always ended up taking my instruments apart and tinkering with them while I should have been practicing. Growing up in New England, I spent hours hanging out in the shops of local luthiers like Lou DiLeone, picking up whatever advice I could. This habit became an obsession for over 25 years, through a degree in sociology, a Masters in engineering, and a 20 year career as a product designer.
Years ago, I found myself in New York looking for a change. I was lucky enough to meet David and Judy Gage, and spent several years at a workbench 6 feet away from David. During that time, I saw more basses (and bass injuries) than most people see in a decade, and nursed them back to health alongside five of the best bass luthiers in the business.
Eventually, it was time to move the family out of New York. Here in Somerville, MA Studio Pangaro specializes in the meticulous setup and repair of double bass, cello, and guitar. I also make double basses and have instruments for sale.
