Tim’s Band Instrument Service was founded in 1977 on the repair bench by Tim Lawrence. Tim developed and grew the business and eventually moved a couple of doors down the building into the corner suite with much more room. The store was known for the outstanding repairs, and quality instruments, and a grand selection of mouthpieces and reeds.Scott and Melissa Mandeville purchased the business on May 1st, 2005. Scott continued to grow the business from the repair bench, and expand on the original concept. Scott and Melissa moved Tim’s Band Instrument Service on December 1st 2009 to 2812 Marconi Ave.Tim's Music has been blessed with growth, and moved into our New expanded facility at 6818 Fair Oaks Blvd in Carmichael, CA.
