Chris K Music is there for all your repair needs.
With a growing need for instrument repair in the Mattoon/Charleston IL area, Chris K Music added instrument repair as a full time service in 2012. Since then, students, musicians, churches and families have been trusting Chris K Music with all their instrument repair needs.
We also offer onsite repairs for schools, churches and families with large instruments (piano, drums, heavy keyboards etc.). So if you have a trumpet that needs to be welded, a drum that needs tuned, a guitar that is cracked or a flute that needs new pads, Chris K Music Lessons and Repair Studio is there for you!
How does repair services work at Chris K Music?
Contact Chris K Music to set up a drop off or make an appointment. Small repairs (string changes, wood wind pad leaks, sticky trumpet valves etc.) usually takes 1-2 days depending on repair. Some repairs depending on drop off may be finished before the end of day or in a few hours after drop off!
Refurbishing instruments usually take a week or more depending on parts and type of refurbishment. I don’t have any extra instruments or loaner instruments (that’s why I jump on top of repairs right away!) Depending on drop off repairs could be made in the same day!
