Repairs

Mr Music does repair work on most musical instruments. We provide full warranty service on all of the instruments we sell.

Violin Restoration

Do you have an old violin that needs restoration? You can bring it to us and in most cases, we can bring your instrument back to life! We can replace missing parts, clean and rejuvenate the wood, install new strings, tune it up and get it ready to play. We can provide a brand new case if desired.

Accordion Repairs

Mr Music repairs accordions. Bring your instrument to us and we will be able to let you know if it can be fixed. If we determine that repairs are possible, upon your approval we will provide a written estimate. There is a fee, which must be paid in advance for the full estimate, but that fee is deducted from the total repair bill.

Frequently Asked Questions About Repairs

 

Q. Who does your repair work?

A. This depends on the type of work that is needed. We have repair technicians in-house for most jobs including all accordion repairs, violin repairs and restorations, guitar restringing and setup, guitar repairs, as well as minor work on brass and woodwind instruments. We also have specialists right here in the Fort Myers area who perform major electronics repairs, dent work and overhauls on band instruments and more.

Q. What do you charge for repairs?

A. Most repair jobs are comparatively minor and can be done at a reasonably low cost to you. Our policy with band instrument repairs is that if the total cost is going to be $70.00 or less, we go ahead with the repair and automatically contact you when it’s done. If the cost is going to be more than $70.00, we will contact you for approval before any work is done. Some jobs such as accordion repairs, brass and woodwind re-pads or overhauls and electronics work require a deposit.

Q. Is there any kind of guarantee on your repair work?

A. All Mr Music repairs are guaranteed for 60 days. This guarantee covers repair work that was done by Mr Music only. For example, if you bring in a saxophone and you ask us to replace the neck cork and subsequently have a different problem with that same instrument, only the neck cork job is covered by our guarantee. Often-replaced parts such as guitar strings are not covered under any guarantee. Makes sense, right?

Q. How long does it take?

A. Most repairs are done in two to ten days from the time you drop off your instrument or equipment. If longer time is needed we will let you know the estimated time and the reason for it. This usually happens when parts have to be ordered.

Q. Can I speak directly with your repairman?

A. With the exception of accordion repairs where you will speak directly with Mr. Magnante, all communication is carried out with the administrative personnel at Mr Music. This policy prevents miscommunications (he said/she said) and misunderstandings.

Q. What about repairs on a rented instrument?

A. If you’re currently making monthly payments on an instrument that you rented from Mr Music and your account is up-to-date, you’re automatically covered for most repairs. In rare cases their may be a rental instrument repair that is not included in your loss-damage waiver. These would include repairs that are needed due to damage caused by abuse or neglect. In almost all cases, rental instrument repairs are fully covered and we take care of everything at no additional cost to you, the renter.

Q. Do you offer loaner instruments while we’re waiting for the repair?

A. If you are renting an instrument from us, we are happy to provide you with a loaner instrument to use while you are waiting for the repair job to be completed. We do this as a courtesy and we are not under obligation to provide loaner instruments. Of course, this depends on current inventory levels. For rental customers, we can almost always provide a loaner instrument when needed.

We will be happy to speak to you about your repair job. Please call (239) 561-5611 or stop in during store hours or click HERE to send a message to us.
