Repair Services

Every repair at Shady Lea is performed with the utmost respect and care. We strive to make every instrument perform to its fullest potential. No repair is too large or too small. We are a full service repair and maintenance center for all of your instruments needs. 

Do you have serious damage to an instrument that you play with great frequency? No problem! We can work within a timeline if you have a deadline in mind. 

Do you have an instrument that just needs a simple adjustment or a cleaning? In some cases, we may be able to offer "While You Wait" same-day turn around depending on the demands of the repair. 

We approach every repair with the same gravity that a surgeon would pay to a patient. No two repairs are the same; We make sure that your instrument is attended to with the same care and devotion that you would give to it yourself.


All repairs are billed by the hour. Instead of charging flat rates for certain services, we find that this is a better value to you if we can keep track of the time logged on your repair minute by minute!

We offer two rates : $50/hr Standard Repairs
                                $80/hr  Rush ASAP Repairs
