As well as hiring out instruments, we also have a highly skilled team of instrument repairers to make sure all instruments are given the care and attention they need - both in maintenance and repair.

When you hire an instrument from us, services or minor repairs are free, as long as you have taken every care to look after your instrument. Full details will be contained in your hire contract.  

Even if your instrument isn't hired from us, or your hired instrument needs a major repair, we offer an instrument repair service at very competitive prices.  Contact us on 01452 427242 for more information.
