London Trumpet Repair Services

Our London Trumpet Repair Workshop is based in Haringey & provides a full range of repair services in North London. Whether it is a complete instrument overhaul, releasing a seized valve or making a simple adjustment, our experienced technicians are here to help.

All instruments are appropriately assessed prior to any work taking place. After assessment, your designated technician will review the work to be undertaken with you. Upon agreeing to the formal quotation, work on your instrument will begin on the scheduled day.

We pride ourselves on a high level of customer service and as work takes place on your instrument, we’ll keep you informed as progress is made. Should additional issues be found, the technician working on your instrument will contact you directly to first explain the issue and then discuss the options to resolve it.

Trumpet Servicing

We provide three servicing options for Trumpets, Individual Repair, Light Service and a Full Service/Overhaul. Our Service options are designed to bring used instruments back to factory fresh condition, ensuring they sound good and feel great to play.

Individual Repair

If you have a fairly new or recently serviced trumpet, or perhaps there is just one issue which is preventing the instrument from functioning, we can treat the issue in a “per item” basis, this will bring the instrument back into playing order but will not involve a full strip down and clean.

Light Service

Full Service

“Every instrument is unique. As instrument repairers, we are tasked with restoring the instrument to its best, without compromising its soul and character.”

  • How frequently should my Trumpet be serviced?

    Service intervals vary depending on the quality of your Trumpet, how well it is looked after and the environment in which it is stored.

  • I need my instrument back for an exam/performance, what is the fastest turnaround?

    We aim to complete all of our Trumpet repairs to a high standard and in a timely manner. At times of high demand and the nature of most repairs typically needing time to settle, we cannot offer a set timescale for all repairs.

    If we assess the instrument and it can be repaired in time for your performance and we have space in our schedule then we can undertake the work.

    In all cases, we offer a short-term instrument rental service that can be used to cover the period in which your instrument is with us for repairs.
