You don't need to play like a pro
                  to have your instrument serviced where the pros do!

                Windshoppe offers Expert Band Instrument Repair Services

...ranging from routine maintenance to complete reconditioning. Your instrument will be serviced from start to finish by an expert repair technician, a member of the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians (NAPBIRT) and Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians (PROBIRT) who is also a professional musician.  This is important because you are assured that the instrument will be play-tested at completion by someone who not only repairs instruments but plays professionally, assuring 100% quality control. Our turnaround time is excellent and we accept work from anywhere in the United States and Canada. All work is fully guaranteed.
