Musical Instrument Repair
David French Music is an authorized musical instrument service center for all major brands of woodwind, brass and orchestral string instruments. We provide musical instrument repair services for professional players as well as schools in over 50 communities in central New England. Work is performed in-house at our location in Westborough, Massachusetts. Our experienced, factory-authorized technicians use their traditional skills as well as the latest technology to ensure that your musical instrument plays to its full potential.
We also provide free loaners for most instruments while we perform service and offer in-school delivery of repaired instruments for our school music program customers.
Our custom musical instrument repair shop provides maintenance and set-up, and is devoted to making your instrument play to its full potential.
We offer everything from small services like pad, cork, and spring replacement, to big repair jobs such as straightening bent bodies, tenon replacement, and complete mechanical restoration.
We use technology such as the Magnahelic Machine to isolate minute leaks that would go undetected by traditional methods alone, ensuring exact pad placement so that your instrument plays better than ever.
We can even customize your instrument with key risers, special pad requests, or fabricate a new rod or screw on our lathe.
Brass instruments require specialized care. At David French Music, we can handle anything a student or professional brass player needs -- in addition to valve, dent and custom work, we offer the most advanced instrument cleaning technology available today. Ultrasonic cleaning provides a fast, highly effective, and environmentally sound way to clean brass instruments, so we can keep your instrument clean and sounding great.
Our brass shop also features the Magnetic Dent Removal system, which enables us to remove hard to reach dents without disassembling your horn, saving you time and money.
The most important aspect of a string instrument's performance is the setup. That's why we carefully string, tune, and set up every single string instrument we sell here in our own shop. In addition to professional string instrument setup work, we also repair cracks, replace bridges, and perform other common repairs often needed by school music programs.
