A very large part of the success of The Horn Section is due to the talented and dedicated repair technicians that keep all of the instruments in top shape. Our shop is not an afterthought but a central part of our business. Our repair center is the most complete in the area and features much state of the art equipment including a 90 gallon Ultra Sonic tank and a complete magnetic dent removal system. We stock the most common replacement parts for all major brands and every instrument is play tested before it leaves our shop.
We are happy to work on all major brands of instruments no matter where they were purchased. In the last several years we have seen a number of new “brands” of instrument with which we are not familiar. Unfortunately some of these fall below the minimum standards for what we would consider a viable instrument in materials, design or build and sometimes all three. These instruments usually sell for far less money than an established brand name and can be quite enticing. Please keep in mind that we usually consider these to be disposable instruments and you are better off buying another one rather than attempting to have it repaired. They usually will not have a company standing behind them with service or replacement parts. We will usually not work on these instruments because of the lack of support of any manufacturer.
We are always happy to answer questions regarding a specific brand or model of instrument if we are able!
