Mozingo Music



Repair services


Our Repair Team specializes in:

Brass Repair• Guitar Repair • Stringed Instrument Repair • Woodwind Repair

We repair virtually any Band and Orchestra Instrument, along with Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar and Bass Guitar Repair/Setup. If we rent it, we can fix it! Percussion is a little different; we do repair, but it’s mostly replacing drum heads. But yes, we also repair Drums and Percussion.

Our experienced repair staff can fix your Woodwind, Brasswind, Percussion, or Orchestra instrument in a timely and professional manner. Our Band Instrument repair technicians are NAPBIRT* certified. If you need a minor adjustment, a complete repad, a small ding removed, a flush and valve job, just a string or drumhead replaced, we can do it! Just drop your instrument off at either location.

As a parent, you want to know that if you need your child’s instrument repaired, adjusted, or properly set-up, you can do so with ease, affordability, and convenience.

Mozingo Music has a full repair facility with in-store personnel that works on all instruments. Additionally, we do full set-ups and repair on fretted instruments with the most competitive pricing and turn-around in the business.

Mozingo Music is proud to have Rene Lopez heading-up our Guitar & Orchestra repair and set-up department. Rene has 30 years experience and has set-up and repaired thousands of guitars & stringed instruments.
