Band Repair

band repair

We would like to say we can work on any instrument, but some instruments are made in such a way that no matter how good a repair technician may be, he or she cannot repair it to an acceptable level. These instruments are basically disposable. The following are brand name instruments our repair shop(s) will work on. If it is not one of these listed, we would have to inspect the individual instrument to see if it is repairable. List of instruments that we can work on:

Armstong Artley Bach Besson
Benge Blessing Buescher Buffet
Bundy Conn Emerson Fox
Gemeinhardt Getzen Holton Jupiter
Keilwerth King Knilling Leblanc
Scheibner Scherl & Roth Selmer St. Petersburg
Vito Yamaha Yanagisawa

Electronic Repair

Our Electronic Repair Technician, Martin, is located at our store in Lubbock, TX. Electronics is a whole different ballgame when it comes to getting things repaired. Most all manufacturers will only supply electronic technicians with parts if he/she is certified to work on their gear. So this means that we don't make the rules when it comes to electronic repair, the manufacturers do. Martin currently has the certification and permission to do warranty work on the brands listed below:

Peavey Korg Fender Roland
Yamaha VOX JBL Pro
