Good morning, FHO citizens.
Is there a fiddle repairman in Tucson named Scott Drain?
Lew - You might try messaging "wormbower" here. I think he had a luthier by that name when he lived here. Paul is not very active, but I believe a PM might get to him. Or contact The Folk Shop ( thefolkshop.com ), they would know luthiers in the area. I had my fiddle set up through them several years ago.
Thanks, all. I appreciate your help.
Are you looking for Scott Drain or a good luthier in Tucson? I can't help you find Scott Drain. But if you're looking for a good luthier in Tucson I would highly recommend Marc Rennard.

If you do contact Southwest Strings, ask for Adan Rico.
Marc was a luthier in Missouri for many years. Here is an article referencing that time period.
He's also an excellent player.
He did major work one of my fiddles including graduation, replacing a thin fingerboard, new bass bar, etc. More recently he repaired a cracked end block on a 140 or so year old fiddle. He's rehaired two bows for me.
Adan Rico is head of repairs at Southwest Strings.

Thanks you all. It is actually Mr. Drain I'm looking for - you've all given me good leads, though, and I appreciate your help. Have a great weekend. Lew
In that case, two other musical instrument stores to contact would be the Chicago Music Store and Instrumental Music Center.
Hi Lew, just sent you an email with info.
