is a luthier shop that is run out of the owners' house. It's a family endeavor, and it shows in a very favorable way. And, while it's a bit out of the way - my own drive from the
Bench district was about 7 miles, or 20 minutes - I found it well worth the drive. They do have stated business hours but because they run
out of their house, they seem to be very flexible about accommodating hours outside the normal business hours to help you adjust to the vagaries and demands of your own life.

I took a new and reasonably expensive violin to have a tailpiece changed. There was also some buzzing so I had them check the seams on the bouts, as well. The initial inspection revealed three seams that needed to be repaired. Later, on closer inspection, they found a total of seven seams had separated and needed to be re-glued. Despite the additional work they stuck with their already very reasonable original estimate and completed all the work in 2 days.

The instruments they rent and sell vary from a moderate, but still reasonable student instrument, to those suitable for professionals. And, while they focus on violins and violas, they also carry a few cellos and basses.

The price rating I'm giving this shop is based on the repair costs, not the sale of instruments, which can vary dramatically.

This small and intimate but very professional shop is a bit off the beaten path but I'll be taking my own instruments to them for all my luthier needs in the future.

put a higher nut on my old Tele and managed to save the old nut in case I ever wanted to get it back to original condition. He also took it apart and cleaned all the electrical connections and tightened up everything that had gotten loose over the years. Also, because it wasn't too much out of his way he picked it up and returned it after he had finished. He did an excellent job on all of it.

The service you receive with KY music is amazing. Big city musical experience with southern hospitality. Not to mention their prices were better than any other store I have been in. Wish I could rate them better than what I could.

Because my piano was moved at the same time of a friend%27s piano%2c I have estimated the cost of the move. It was moved from

I recently made an appointment through
Hickory Hills Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
Services to have the keys on my piano adjusted by softening the action, which were a little "hard" to begin with. Setting up the initial appointment was very easy, as the woman who answered the phone was very organized and experienced. The company website also has the option to schedule an appointment online. I later received an e-mail confirmation for my appointment date and time, and also a confirmation call from the technician on the day of my appointment. The local technician for

, was prompt and spent about two hours on my piano. I am very pleased with the results, and now that the keys have been adjusted, my piano is much easier to play. I will definitely recommend this company to my friends, and their fees are very reasonable as well.

I have a piano that hadn't been tuned in close to 20 years. I was afraid that I'd waited too long and it might not be able to be tuned. Well

did an excellent job tuning our piano.
They were prompt, professional, and reasonably priced.
The technician did a great job and he even had to put up with our cat, who wanted to "help."
We would highly recommend them for any required piano service.

Technician (

) was professional, personable and punctual. Easy and quick to schedule an appointment (critical when you are eager to play an instrument that is terribly out of tune)--he was working on the piano 2 days after my call! It had not been turned or played in many years so

had his work cut out for him--the sound it made before he started would make even a non-musician cringe. He spent nearly 2 hours working and when he was done it sounded once again like a piano. Although quite old and no longer being made (a Weaver piano), he was familiar with it, knew all of its quirks and readily prepared it for tuning. He handled the piano with great care and even vacuumed all the dusty bits before putting it back together.
