"Not only does
keep my piano sounding great, he also keeps an eye out for the extra kinds of maintenance things that will help my piano have" a long, healthy life. Several years ago when my son was at the age where he was trying to quit lessons
worked on the action to give the piano a softer touch, and voila! About half of the
over playing disappeared. I've had several piano techs in the 25 years I have owned my piano and
is the best, by far. He offers an discount if you sign up for a regular piano tuning schedule.

"
is a complete professional who takes great pride in his craft, whether moving or working on a good piano like the
" we owned for several months, or on a magnificent instrument like our 1923 Steinway. As his work on our Steinway was far more important to me, I'll concentrate on that.
understood that I had played this piano from childhood and that I was devastated when it was declared beyond repair. He was sensitive to my uncertainties about how a rebuild would
out, and he kept me updated and reassured throughout the process. Ultimately, I realized that
loves my piano almost as much as I do and treats it accordingly. The piano looks, sounds, and feels fabulous again, and
will keep it that way through the multiple tunings it needs in this first year as a rebuild, and beyond. While I expected that
would also need to voice the Steinway once it was back in our home, it is entirely to his credit that he had anticipated so well that the voicing was already perfect by the time he delivered it.
is the kind of craftsmen that is becoming rarer and rarer, one who can reliably and sensitively do whatever a piano needs, and we are lucky he works in our area.

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.

I contacted

's piano. I mean, I understand that piano needs to be tuned more urgently than mine :)
He arrived on time and was able to diagnose the problem (broken string) repair it and bring the whole piano back to tune. I hadn't had it tuned in about 8 years (my bad) so while it was tune overall it was flat overall. The process took about 2 hours. He used some modern tech for the tuning process. I'm not exactly a concert pianist so I can't speak to the quality of the tune – I'm sure it's solid, especially if he's the go-to piano tuner for

I took my brother's 25-year old Fender acoustic guitar in to replace the first string's tuning gear. These were "closed" gears, meaning it was completely housed. It had stripped and you could not tune the string. My brother finally wanted the instrument back and I wanted to repair it before giving it to him. I thought this would be a relatively
Sun Prairie Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
repair. One, in fact, that I could probably do myself, but decided to have
Sun Prairie Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
do it because I have four other acoustic guitars and three electrics that need service sometimes, and two of which need some repair work. Thought the Fender would provide a good test. And did it ever. For starters, I could not buy just ONE gear, let alone an OEM or clone. They came in sets of three. Because I wanted them to all match, I had to replace all six. Okay, fine. I was more bothered by the fact that they were not OEM. I had no idea what quality I was getting, but for the price was satisfied they'd be 'okay' replacements. I took the guitar in on a Wed. evening after work and being right around Christmas, the place was packed. I found the service counter and told the 'kid' there what I wanted to have done. He said no problem, they had the gears in stock. I asked that he also replace the strings with a specific brand and gauge, again no problem, and that I needed to pick the guitar up that Saturday because I was leaving town with it on that Sunday. And again, no problem with meeting that delivery date. So, all is well, right? Two+ days, parts in stock, should be a no-brainer. That Thursday tho', I get a call... gears were not in stock, but were ordered and on their way. Guitar will be ready Saturday, around noon. Now, probably my fault for not calling first, but I headed out there around 11:30 to 119th (from 83rd &
Sun Prairie Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
, so not terribly far), and again the place was packed now being
Sun Prairie Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
. 20. I went to the service desk and learned that the guitar wasn't ready after all. In fact, wouldn't be ready until much later in the day, and could I come back around 5. I stomped around a bit quite put out and told them again that I MUST have it TODAY as I was leaving town at 8 the next morning. But, yeah, go ahead. So... at about 5, I head back. Again, the place is packed. Again the kid at the service desk checks and, no, the guitar is not up there ready to be picked up. "Where is it?", I asked. "Uh... I'll go check.", he replies. So he disappears somewhere for about 10, maybe 15 minutes. Comes back with the guitar, in it's case. He starts the checkout process, while I have to clear some space on their crowded countertop so I could
Sun Prairie Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
the case down and open it. To my horror, no strings on it. No gears on it. "Uh, 'scuse me, but we have a problem here..." So... to wrap up this story, he takes the guitar and case, disappears for another 20 or so minutes, finally comes back up and the gears are FINALLY on it. But no strings. I told him I needed it strung up too. "Uh, what kind of strings did you want?"
Sun Prairie Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
, thought I'd covered that when I dropped it off 3 days ago... but, okay... I need a set of
Sun Prairie Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
' light gauge. So, he strings it up and while doing so, I'm checking the case. "Uh...I don't see the original tuning gears in here. I'm going to need those back." So... off he goes again to retrieve these, hopefully. Finally, after about an hour., the guitar is ready with new gears, new strings, old gears in the case. They have it for 3 days and don't do a thing to it until I'm standing there waiting for it for the second time that day. Really??? So, I have a 1975

Dove that needs set-up work, new strings, and my '74 Ovation Legend also needs set-up and strings. There is ABSOLUTELY NO WAY, EVER, that I would take either one of those guitars to

for ANY kind of repair. I will NEVER go back for ANY guitar repair or parts, even for a cheap acoustic. EVER!
Sun Prairie Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
is fine if you want to buy gear. In fact, I highly recommend them even if their prices can be easily beat online. (But seriously folks, do not buy a guitar online. You MUST pick it up, hold it, play it.) But don't bother taking anything in for service. You can do better and deserve better for your instruments.

My amplifier stopped working and I took it to

I received an email confirming the appointment, a phone call the day before to make sure we were still set, and then

called on his way.

was great - he even removed his shoes when he walked in without me asking (much appreciated). It took about 45 minutes and he answered all my questions before leaving. I'll be having him back in the future to keep this piano in great condition moving forward. Highly recommend this company for any need!

Sun Prairie Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
was very friendly and professional. He seemed knowledgeable and eager to do the job well. Because our piano had been out of tune for so long, he recommended more frequent tuning for the next year or two before we ease into an annual schedule. The piano sounds much better, and I trusted his opinion and work enough to schedule another appointment.

This piano was completely reconditioned in 2006. They had used the best parts and did a fantastic job except the action was not as good as it should be on this model of Steinway.

After neglecting our 6ft grand piano for several years, we knew we needed a pretty comprehensive tuneup. The technician came at the set time and went right to work. Because we needed to raise the pitch, he said that it would require two separate trips. Everything went smoothly and I thought he did an excellent job with the tuning.

This man is a savior. My son is using a very old saxophone purchased for my mom when she was in school (over 50 years ago). The pads were replaced roughly 25 years ago when the instrument was used by my sister. The recommendation was that the whole thing needed pads and a tune up. We found
Sun Prairie Guitar Repairs Provider Name Locked
on Angie's list and brought it to him to be looked at. He played the instrument and decided that actually only a couple of pads truly needed replacement and it needed a few small adjustments. We saved hundreds of dollars by using
