Student Instruments. Why buy a new instrument
when you can save up to half off list price with a high
quality, certified used student instrument? Certified
means the instrument has been completely
disassembled, cleaned, and reassembled, replacing
any materials that are worn, loose or damaged. You
gain peace of mind, knowing the instrument plays
great and comes with a full, one-year warranty.

Expert Repairs. Tim Moran learned the instrument
repair trade the old-fashioned way: a one-on-one
apprenticeship that began with sweeping the shop
floor and ended three years later when he was taken
on as his teacher's partner. That was back in the
late 1970's, and he has practiced the trade ever
since. Because he plays the instruments he repairs,
he treats each one "as if it were his own", with
meticulous attention to the finer details of response,
touch and intonation. Tim can handle everthing
from emergency spot repairs to complete overhauls
and restorations. Contact us for an appointment to
bring your horn in for repair. Our professional
assessment and written estimate are absolutely free!
