S. is simply the best. I've had him work on about 6 different guitars now and he is meticulous. He'll help you figure out best" solution and provide a variety of options based on cost. Just a great guy and he'll work with you to make sure you're happy. I wouldn't use anyone else (and I've tried plenty others over the years.

"A friend of mine was going to give me a piano. Before they gave it to me, I wanted to get it appraised. It went very well. He was very knowledgeable and complete." He explained what he was doing, what it would cost to fix the problem, and gave me an assessment on if it would be worth moving the piano from my friends. ($125 plus tax. He came to the location to do the estimate as well). He also gave me a written report of the estimate for my records.

Musical instrument repair

If you already own or are thinking about owning a musical instrument, you'll need to factor in the cost of repair and maintenance for that instrument. Even the most carefully played instrument will require some amount of upkeep over the years. Luckily, if you have your instrument regularly serviced, you're less likely to run into costly repairs down the road.

Is your woodwind wacky? Has your brass gone bad? Children’s marching band or other musical instruments get necessary tune-ups thanks to the keen eyes and steady hands of Indianapolis-area skilled craftsmen.

Our piano had not been tuned for many years and was in real need of tuning.
Santa Monica Musical Instrument Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
was going to be in Indianapolis to tune a friend's piano and had time to tune ours as well. I am really pleased with the results. After playing our piano briefly,
Santa Monica Musical Instrument Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
said, "We can help this piano!" He certainly did. Not only is
Santa Monica Musical Instrument Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
very experienced at his work, he is also a talented pianist and provided me with a lovely performance when he was finished. We will be using
Santa Monica Musical Instrument Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
in the future to keep our piano in tune. There is a discount for those who choose to have their pianos tuned twice a year, so the cost will be about $50 less in the future. We paid more for the initial tuning because our piano was so badly out of tune. What a difference that tuning made. I am playing my piano regularly again, and thoroughly enjoying myself.

Mr.
Santa Monica Musical Instrument Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
Slooten is very professional in appearance and demeanor. He is very knowledgeable about all kinds of pianos and the different maintenance required for each. He has tuned my piano on 2 different occasions and both times I was very pleased. Not only does he tune the piano perfectly but he also thoroughly cleans the inside of the piano. On one occasion he arrived 15 minutes late for our appointment but he was very considerate and called to let me know he would be late and when to expect his arrival. Very considerate given the fact that I have been "left hanging" on more than one occasion by professionals who never show up or call! He was able to diagnose the problem with my broken key and fix it with no problem. I have complete confidence in Mr.

Slooten's care of my piano and truly believe he would go out of his way to keep my old piano (from the 50s) in working order! Highly recommended!

One of the strings was the WRONG string, clearly not the brand I requested, does not match the other three violin strings. On looking at the company's website, all the strings should be red/blue at the tailpiece end, but clearly the E string is solid red, does not correspond to the wrapping color the manufacturer says these strings all have. Refused to correct problem, said "they came like that from the factory, so since you have a wrong one, you should contact the factory." Uh, no. You took my money; you make it right.

Had a guitar setup and some fret work done. Great quality work and finished it on time. I have used his services before and will do so again. A+ in my book.

They showed up on time and moved my grand piano to my daughter's house without an issue. Set the piano up perfectly upon arrival to my daughter's house. Even helped me out by moving a couch from my daughter's house back to my house. Very professional and efficient.

Rich is obviously a piano expert and has years of experience restoring and rebuilding pianos. Yet he came to my house and did a super job tuning my 40-year-old Sohmer spinet AND he fixed the 2 front wheels and the top hinge which were bent from a recent move.
I couldn't be happier with my piano and with the whole experience!

I have used 5 or 6 Guitar Centers in Ohio and around the country and the Cincinnati branch is, by far, the best store I've dealt with for guitar associated stuff. You can't generalize too much, because the knowledge and ethics of each person varies, but I've found the older the person you're dealing with the better. The young guys think they know something, but it's usually bravado. The best guitar guys at the Cincinnati store are:

. Very knowledgable, ethical and they know the

value of a used guitar, if you're selling one to them (they will give you 60% of what they can sell it for - very fair in my estimation). These guys have helped me innumerable times with no unpleasant attitude. I know I can be irritating when buying a guitar and they tolerate me with aplomb.
I generally favor small independent stores vs big corporate stores, but not when it comes to guitars. I've found
