Musica is the place to bring your broken instruments
We will tune your guitar (instrument tuning is always free, except for difficult and persnickety instruments like clavichords and autoharps).
For a nominal fee, we will re-string look over and set up your violins, violas, guitars, requintos, rebecs, cellos, pipas and what have you with pleasure.
We also to deal with the crazyish problems that arise with electric guitars (weird bridge systems, electrical shorts and broken wire etal).
Our band instruments are repaired by Luann Sciotti who founded Strictly Woodwinds a decade ago after working and learning for a period of time with Billy Cole, formerly of Watervliet and lately of Saratoga. She is fa ast, conscientious repair tech and a great bass player. She repairs our instruments in her shop in Rensselaer NY. She or her assistant Sheila pick up and drop off instruments once or twice a week depending on how needy we are. Usually you’ll find a significant difference (for the better) in the way your flute, sax, trumpet, trombone (or whatever) plays.
Most of our employees are musicians, trained and qualified to make minor repairs, tune or change strings on your instrument. Since they play an interesting and expansive array of instruments, the Musica staff is uniquely able to share knowledge on a variety of instruments and musical styles. Come and see us, we might be able to fix that old Chromaharp, zither or Banjolin from Grandpa’s attic!
