Tim's Music is completely prepared to deal with your instruments!  Because of COVID-19 we developed new special procedures to sanitize and protect you and your instrument, while continuing to perform all of the necessary maintenance and repairs to keep your instrument in top playing condition. Please come on in and ask us about our procedures to protect your health.

We do everything from the simplest musical instrument repair to complete restoration services on all band and orchestra instruments.  We offer electronic repairs on almost any electronic equipment. Tim's Music repair shop can also repair all of your guitars and orchestral strings.

Tim's Music had the first ultrasonic cleaner in the region.  The results of the ultrasonic cleaner are nothing short of amazing.  The benefit of this specialized technology is keeping the interior of your instrument free from the harmful deposits and science projects that grow while you play.  A regular trip through the shop will keep your instrument playing great and will keep the damaging calcium buildup from rotting your instrument from the inside out.

With this special enviornmentally safe media, we can safely and effectively remove the calcium and oxides that build up while you play.  The benefits go far beyond the protection of your instrument.  Keeping the inside of the instrument clean will allow you to maintain the bore of the instrument for a consistent feel while playing.

Tim's Music uses the ultrasonic cleaning technology for cleaning woodwind instruments as well.  The woodwind instruments can benefit from the ultrasonic cleaning in various ways.  When the bore of the instrument becomes impacted from a buildup of debris, or the grime builds up on the outside of the instrument, we can safely and effectively clean and restore the instrument to its best playing condition with the advantage of ultrasonic technology.

See for yourself the results of the ultrasonic technology.  Tim's Music produced a number of videos that they use in their promotional materials.  See those videos and an actual cleaning process by visiting these links. Trumpet Ultrasonic Cleaning

The ultrasonic technology not only keeps your instrument healthy, it goes a long way toward keeping you healthy as well.  A regular maintenance schedule, including daily, weekly, and monthly attention will keep your instrument in better performing condition and allow you the advantages of health while you play.
