Tague Music has one of the best repair and restoration shops in Northern California. Headed by master craftsman Kris Tague, our technicians can repair and/or restore your instrument. Custom modification and specialty work on some instruments is also available (see the following list).
We offer repairs and/or restoration on the following instruments:
1. Brasswinds: cornet (all keys), trumpet (all keys and forms), fluegelhorn, horn (all keys and valve systems), alto horn, euphonium / baritone horn (including variations), trombone (all forms and keys), and tuba (all keys and valve systems). Historical brass instrument repair and restoration are a specialty.
2. Woodwinds: piccolo, flute, oboe and oboe family, clarinet and clarinet family (all pitches and key systems, including contrabass), saxophone (all pitches and key systems, including contrabass), bassoon family (including contrabassoon), and others.
3. Percussion: drum head replacement, shell repairs, rim repair and replacement, and related repairs.

5. Orchestral percussion: tympani & mallet percussion (bells, chimes, xylophone, marimba, vibraphone, etc.).
6. Guitar: both electric and acoustic, complete repair and restoration. Historic instrument restoration is a specialty. Custom modification work is also available.
7. Ukulele, mandolin, orchestral harp, sitar, banjo, and other "world" stringed instruments. Yes, we have a resident luthier whose experience is wide and deep.
8. Electronics: keyboards, instrument amplifiers, mixing boards, speaker enclosures, and other electronic instruments and instrument components.
Our repairs are performed in-house by our expert technicians. In the very rare event that work is sent out (for example, brass instrument total re-lacquer and re-plating work), you will know the cost and the projected return time before you decide to proceed.
As the preceding list demonstrates, we can handle the vast majority of repair and restoration work. If it's an instrument that makes sound, bring it in and let us estimate it for you. Repair and restoration estimates are free of charge!
