Our seasoned repair technicians have over 120 years of combined repair experience. We have the parts, tools, and know-how to get ALL band and orchestra instruments back into perfect playing condition.
From that old Mark VI tenor sax to that Bach Strad trumpet that you haven't played in over 20 years, let us make it play and look like new! Easy adjustments, complete overhauls, replating, refurbishments, or custom work--there isn't anything we can't do to make that instrument feel like the way it did the day you bought it. To see an example of our work, watch one of our videos, drop us a line, or simply come see us at the store.
Instrument Repair Costs, Effective Oct. 2021
Prices below are for typical estimates for basic services. Other issues may arise, so all prices are subject to change, even after the work actually begins by the technician(s). The ONLY way to receive an accurate estimate is for our qualified repair technician to see it in person inside the store. Tennessee sales tax must be added to all services (both parts and labor).
Due to the nature of the instrument repair business, do not be surprised if your official, in-store estimate differs from the prices listed below.
Giant Steps does NOT sell repair parts to the public. We have a professional shop, and we are proud to offer professional services from our shop.
Estimates are always free, so please stop by any time!
IMPORTANT: We reserve the right to refuse to work on any instrument.
