Good Playing Condition

Our professional repair techs carefully inspect and adjust all used instruments to ensure good playing condition. Each instrument is cleaned, has keys aligned, corks replaced, pads leveled, peg adjusted, and a lot more- anything affecting playability is addressed.

Above and Beyond

All used instruments are ensured to be in good playing condition when they leave our store. If you notice something isn't right within the first 30 days we will make it right - at no charge to you. Our staff of musicians, music educators, music lovers, and gearheads are ready to go above and beyond to ensure you're happy with your instrument.
