Repair Services by Craig Christman

I offer a full range of repair services, as well as custom work, on woodwind, brasswind, orchestral strings, percussion, keyboards, guitars, and all electronic instruments from student to professional level.   Every instrument I work on receives the greatest care and I only use the very best parts, tools, and materials available.  My shop is fully equipped with the latest and greatest tools for all wind instruments such as an Omegasonics ultrasonic cleaner, HD color borescope, Magnehelic (pressurized leak indicator), and many other state of the art tools.  I focus on providing the finest quality repairs, with an extreme attention to detail, to provide the performing artist the highest level of satisfaction with their instrument.  I work hard to stay on the cutting edge of technology, to improve my craft and to develop my skills to the highest ability, yet still maintaining an Old World work ethic rarely found these days.  I'm a Straubinger Certified flute and clarinet pad technician and I'm also a member of NAPBIRT (National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians).

I have been professionally repairing instruments for almost 30 years and have earned a solid reputation both as a full time professional musician and as a repair technician.  My experience as a multi-instrumentalist has given me a unique insight into the different instruments and I take great pride in the work that I do!  If you have any repair questions or concerns, feel free to contact me either by email or phone 239-254-8863.  To read a little more about me, click here.


Cecilio, Mendini, and others....oh my!

Please note, we do not service brands such as Cecilio, Mendini and many others found on sites like Amazon, Ebay, and elsewhere.  We can't get parts for those instruments and they are inexpensive for a reason!  We've tried in the past to accommodate people who have been lured by the cheap price but our willingness to help them has always come back to bite us.  They usually break again soon after the repair, often times it's something else unrelated to what we fixed the first time but unfortunately the customer thinks we didn't do a proper repair job.  We will be happy to show you a quality instrument though, so you can see the difference and will do our best to to give you the best price possible!
