Band instrument repair is a highly specialized trade dedicated to providing the care and precision necessary for an instrument to maintain its original quality playing condition.

It requires professional technicians with specific skills and knowledge. Repairing band instruments is more than just cleaning, adjusting and servicing; it is about expertise, something learned the old-fashioned way through hard work and dedication.

Our service department repairs and services all band and percussion-related instruments and cases. Not only do we have the necessary equipment and tools, but also replacement parts to fit instruments dating back 100 years.

In addition, our floor machinery allows us to fabricate job-specific tools and fixtures when needed to repair an exacting problem.

All repairs are estimated first. Estimates are free, provided we do the repair work

Whenever possible, we’ll do minor repairs while you wait.


Complete repads or overhauls have a set price. Individual play condition costs vary from instrument to instrument due to parts and time involved. Our policy is to examine an instrument first in order to provide a fair repair cost evaulation.

Our Professional Affiiliations

A member in good standing since 1976.

The National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians, Inc. (NAPBIRT) was founded in 1976 by a small group of technicians who realized the need for communication and the free exchange of information within their trade.


I have several school band instruments that require a cleaning and tuneup, can I get a bulk order estimate first?

Yes, we always provide estimates and a description of the work needed to be done.

My personal instrument needs repair and cleaning. What do you suggest?

You can bring it to our shop and one of our technician’s will examine the instrument, and give you an estimate.

Do you guarantee your repair work?

Absolutely, 100%.

Why choose us

Andrew at Musicare has been my go-to horn repair and overhaul technician for years.  He is one of only a handful of techs I would trust my horns with on the planet.  His knowledge and work are second to none, and he often goes ‘above and beyond’ a normal overall, making sure your horns both play and look their absolute best!  It is a rare experience to work with someone both trustworthy and talented!   I really couldn’t recommend Andrew more.” Theo Wanne, USA

I have been going to Musicare Inc. since 1982 when I started playing the flute. My grandfather used to drive me, and my repairs were done on the spot when needed! Your family-owned business is amazing. I send my instruments to you with my school music program. Excellent service!


Music Teacher

I’ve been with Musicare for more than 20 years for my school band program, and I also send my own horns in when they need some TLC. They have always provided exceptional service, fair pricing, and are just all-around good people. Love you guys!


Music Teacher

I have dealt with Musicare since 1976. Working with bands in the Pembroke/Petawawa region, you were my famous repair shop and supplier. On many trips I took to Cuban musicians, Musicare was generous with donations, services and great deals on used instruments. Thank you so much for everything you have done over so many years! Great to know you all, and keep going. We need you!!!
