Hauer Music's staff are committed to achieving the highest quality standards in instrument repairs.
It is important to consider the choices available for each instrument prior to repairs or restoration. There is room for compromise because each instrument requires a unique treatment where the degree of repair should be weighed against such factors as the historical value.
Categories of instruments -- the currently replaceable, the superseded, the truly historic instruments, the rare, and the unique -- should be used as a key in determining the extent of restoration and use an instrument might undergo.
One of the essential obligations of each repair technician is to ensure the proper care and conservation of the musical instruments... and to ensure that they are repaired or restored in such a way that they can be passed on to future generations in as good and safe a condition.
There are often difficult decisions to be made in relation to the degree of replacement or restoration of lost or damaged parts of an item. Our highly trained technicians provide advice choices prior to servicing the instrument.
