FAQ

What is the average turn-around time for a repair?

Generally, easier repairs take a few days while more involved work, like complete repads, take about 1.5-2 weeks.  Some adjustment can even be handled on the spot!  Wait times can be lengthened by seasonal volume or when parts need to be ordered.

How much will my repair cost?

Estimates are free and can be given once the technician has had an opportunity to inspect your instrument.  If you are renting the instrument from us, the repair is free of charge. 

What if I need my instrument before the repair is complete?

We offer free loaners on most major wind instruments.  You’ll want to keep your own mouthpiece for use on the loaner (unless it is involved in the repair)
