Instrument Repairs

We have a full band and orchestra repair department set up for all instrument repairs. We have 3 technicians on staff who not only repair instruments for a living, but also play professionally. They truly understand the importance of a well-functioning instrument to the musician. Our repair shop also has a brand-new ultrasonic cleaning machine (largest in St. Louis area) for all wind instruments. We highly recommend any brass or woodwind player to schedule an ultrasonic cleaning at least once a year.

Please contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to serving you and the Saint Louis Metro area.
