Tim’s Music started on the bench over 40 years ago, and has continued to uphold the long standing traditions of craftsmanship in our repair shop. We do everything from the simplest musical instrument repairs to complete restoration services on all band and orchestra instruments. We offer electronic repairs on most any electronic equipment. Tim’s Music can also repair all of your guitars. 

Tim's Music has the first ultrasonic cleaner in the region. The results of the ultrasonic cleaner are nothing short of amazing. The benefit of this specialized technology is keeping the interior of your instrument free from the harmful deposits and science projects that grow while you play. A regular trip through the shop will keep your instrument playing great, and will keep the damaging calcium buildup from rotting your instrument from the inside out. With the special environmentally safe media, we can safely and effectively remove the calcium and oxides that build up while you play. The benefits go far beyond the protection of your instrument. Keeping the inside of the instrument clean will allow you to maintain the bore of the instrument for a consistent feel while playing. See for yourself the results of the ultrasonic technology. Tim’s Music produced a number of videos for the Ultrasonic Power Corp. that they use in all of their promotional materials. All of those videos are up on youtube.com for you to see and show the actual cleaning in process. The results are nothing short of amazing. 

Tim’s Music also uses the ultrasonic cleaning technology for cleaning woodwind instruments as well. The woodwind instruments can benefit from the ultrasonic cleaning in various ways. When the bore of the instruments become impacted from a buildup of debris, or the grime builds up on the outside of the instrument, we can safely and effectively clean and then restore the instrument to its best playing condition with the advantage of the ultrasonic technology. The ultrasonic technology not only keeps your instrument healthy, it goes a long way toward keeping you healthy as well. 

A regular maintenance schedule, including daily, weekly, and monthly attention will keep your instrument in better performing condition, and allow you the advantages of health while you play. There has been much said recently about the dangers of playing a musical instrument. While there is useful information in those reports, the lack of moderation has created some concern. Yes, musical instruments are an environment that bacteria and mold can grow. But with the proper hygiene and cleaning, the dangers are minimized in comparison to the huge advantages gained in playing a musical instrument. 

With the proper cleaning, you can keep your instrument sanitized, and healthy. You have the advantage of knowing your health can be protected with a few very basic steps. See the Napbirt.org website for a very well written article on this important topic of Sterilization vs. Sanitization. See the cleaning pages for detailed information.
