Weve been in business since 1953 and have had the same owner since 1963.
Originally we were a repair shop that specialized in woodwind and sax restoration. Today we have 10 employees including FIVE of the finest repair technicians in the country. Virtually ALL the items we sell have been fully reconditioned in our own shop, although we do sell the occasional unrestored historical instruments each year. Its in addition to any factory guarantees.For two full years, we will repair or replace, whichever in our estimation is the more advisable, pads, corks, springs or other parts required, at no charge to the customer. If your instrument sustains damage to the body, end bow, neck or bell, well burnish out the dents and make it look like new again. Wichita Band Instrument Company maintains a repair department capable of restoration work of the highest quality. Even though repairs are essentially free for the first two years, after that period has expired, we remain at your service to maintain and repair your musical equipment forever. Its our service after the sale promise and has been since 1953!
Anything we sell can be sent to you for a short approval period without obligation. Were happy to correspond with musicians, players, parents and enthusiasts of all types. Written appraisals are always available, but please dont write or telephone and ask whats grannys baritone sax worth?
