Brian, owner & strings tech

 

Sound Beach Music offers repairs on all band & orchestra instruments, fretted instruments, and instruments you don't know the name of (but found in grandpa's attic). These oddball instruments include accordions, autoharps, tiples, dulcimers, strumsticks, erhus, djembes, and more!

We give free estimates for all repairs except off-site amp repairs. Our instrument & amp techs have decades of experience and we are proud to have them service your instruments!
