  • Rates, Levels of Repair and Shipping
    Playing an instrument is a great experience, we want that experience continue when you take your instrument in for service. When you bring your instrument in we take the time to explain exactly what your instrument needs, what your options are and how much it will cost. Policy for General Repairs . We always provide a written (if requested) estimate before starting work, unless advised otherwise. We do not exceed the estimate without authorization. For school instruments, in general and unless directed otherwise we make the minimum required repairs needed to make the instrument play in such a way that it will last at least the year and not hinder the progress of the student. Repairs that are merely cosmetic are not done unless requested. We use only top quality pads and materials for all instruments. For example our standard pads are all double skin, usually better in quality than the factory installed pads. Basic repair details vary slightly from instrument to instrument. Repairs for pros take precedence, other than that, repairs are done in order with consideration taken as to how urgent the repair is. If you are going to be in and out of town on certain days we will do our best to accommodate you. If that means staying open to midnight on a Saturday night, we do it
