experience as a stringed instrument repair tech, Brian has honed in his
skilled and gained a reputation for his attention to detail, thoroughness
in his quality of work, quick turn around times, and fair prices for labor.
Many of you have utilized our repair services, and until recently, Brian

magically a few days later, you picked it up and it felt better than ever
(or at least that’s what we’ve been told many times)!

evenings. You can also contact him via email at

In addition to taking care of your stringed instrument repair needs, Brian
can assist you on the sales floor with any of your musical questions.
