Please read this:

  1. A 12 month guarantee is issued for work carried out, except with some very cheap entry-level instruments, or where the instrument's case is not suitable, is damaged, or missing.
  2. I will contact you if your job will exceed $200, or if I believe the instrument is not worth the expense of repair. Please always supply ph number / email / snail-mail address.
  3. Where handy-man attempts need rectifying, price is double.
  4. I don't do hands-on courses, so you can't watch and wait.
  5. Any instruments not paid for in full by six months after notification of completion will be sold to recover costs. (Please see next point).
  6. I do not retail (buy & sell) but occasionally instruments are sold under some circumstances, such as to recover unpaid repair costs, or where a customer swaps an instrument to pay for another instrument's repairs, and so on. Anything available now is listed Here. Also, if you have an instrument which is beyond repair, I might be interested in buying it for parts, please ask.
  7. Jobs which involve major work will not be undertaken during December, January or February each year because of the extra workload from yearly maintenance of school instruments. The good news is that we have nine other months available to us for these special instruments !!
  8. In all the years I have worked on musical instruments, none have ever gone missing on my watch, or been lost in the post etc. However, if you are concerned about your instrument, I suggest you arrange your own insurance before it leaves your possession. Please see next point.
  9. For security reasons, the land-line phone number and workshop address is never given out. The workshop is not open to the public; if no-one knows where it is, it won't be a target! If you want to get hold of me, click here.
