Repair Information
Pricing, Estimates, and Turnaround Time - General estimates and price ranges for
specific services are available by phone or e-mail. Detailed estimates will require a
physical inspection of the instrument. When inspections are quite involved or
require some degree of disassembly, a minimum bench charge may apply. My
turnaround time varies in accordance with the work load currently scheduled.
Generally, setups and minor repairs are completed within 1-2 days; where as, major
structural repairs and repairs involving finish work will typically take longer. Rush
repairs are available. Inquire for pricing.
