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. We offer repairs on brasswind, woodwind and percussion band instruments, orchestral strings and percussion (including mallet percussion), guitar (electric and acoustic), electronic keyboards, instrument amplifiers, mixing boards, speaker enclosures, and other electronic instruments and instrument components. Bring it in and let us estimate it for you. Repair and restoration estimates are free of charge!
Speaking of free, we also offer certain repair and restoration services free of charge.
1. One of these free services is pulling a brass instrument mouthpiece that is stuck in the instrument. Please don't try to remove a stuck brass mouthpiece yourself! Just bring it in and let us do it for you. Our specialized tooling and knowledge will save hundreds in repair costs.
2. We offer free bore oil service for wood clarinets and oboes. We have the right materials and techniques to be sure that the service is completed correctly. Again, you can save significant repair dollars by letting our experts do this service at no charge.
3. We also offer free vacuum tube testing using our vintage tube tester. These tube testers used to be a standard feature found in many back-in-the-day drug and grocery stores. Solid state components have resulted in these testers becoming rare. We have one in the store and testing is free of charge! We also have a source for replacement tubes. While the testing is free, we do charge for the tubes. So bring in your old or nonfunctional tubes for testing and replacement.
4. There is no cost to make an appointment. Making an appointment to see your doctor or dentist comes with a cost. Our appointments are free to make so we can determine how to best serve your needs.
5. Expert advice is free of charge. We often have first-time customers and realize that many people have questions about musical instruments, private instruction and instrument maintenance. Come in and speak with our expert staff to get your questions answered and start (or continue with!) your musical life. It will be time well-spent.
6. Stringed instrument tuning is also free of charge. Our technician can tune your instrument in a few minutes with your existing strings. Of course, replacement strings and string installation are products and services for which we charge a reasonable cost.
Just call 916.721.0295 to ask a question or make an appointment; or go to our online appointment link to make a free appointment to come in and see us. We're also taking walk-ins Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 4 PM. We hope to hear from you soon!
