Instrument Service & Repair

Instruments are no small investment, but when you take the time to have them properly serviced and repaired, they can last for years—even decades! At Music Source, we want to help you keep your instruments in pristine condition and performing for you for years and years to come. That’s why we offer a variety of different service and repair options for various instruments.
