About UsHow We Started
How We Started
Our Company started in the year 1990, in a small, one room building behind an old music store. Hal Cooper, Jr. — who had graduated from Minnesota State University with an Associates Degree in Music Science — was the only employee. He repaired musical instruments for three years before deciding there was a growing need for used band instruments in our state’s band community. We have come a long way since those days in the 1990’s; our Company has grown into a full service band instrument sales and repair facility. Alongside Hal, we now have four master repair technicians and one apprentice technician on site who find sincere passion in maintaining the quality behind each band instrument.
What We Offer
We provide new, reconditioned, and used band instruments (brass, woodwind, and percussion). These are available to buy, rent-to-own, or simply rent. We also have a full line of instrument accessories available, from reeds to tuba cases. If there is anything we do not have, we would be happy to order it, as well!
What makes our shop truly unique is the fact that we have an on-site repair facility. Not only do we refurbish our own instruments and perform general repairs for our band community, we also do complete overhauls. We are one of just a handful of companies in the United States to do overhauls from start to finish in their own shops.
Our service is fast, professional, and courteous. We genuinely appreciate all of our customers and the trust they’ve placed in our Company over the years.
