Our on-site repair shop is staffed with four master repair technicians, one journeyman technician, and one apprentice technician, resulting in over 120 combined years of instrument repair experience. Our repair techs take pride in their work, always providing the care and precision necessary for an instrument to maintain its original quality playing condition. Not only do they keep instruments in great condition, they also provide complete overhauls on-site, making Cooper Music one of the few companies in the entire United States who perform complete overhauls in their own shops.

BRASS Repair Prices


Clean, Sterilize & Remove All Accessible Dents:
This option gets the instrument in good playing condition. Our technicians clean & sterilize the inside and outside of the instrument, as well as remove any dents. Parts are an additional cost.

Complete Overhaul:
Complete Overhauls give extra emphasis to the instrument’s cosmetic condition. Our technicians clean & sterilize the inside and out, buff the body, lacquer, and remove all dents & scratches. With this option, the instrument will be in good playing condition while also looking much newer. Parts are included in price.

Econo Overhaul:
An Econo Overhaul is similar to the Complete Overhaul. From six feet away, it looks like a new instrument, but when you look closely, you can still see the scratches left in the instrument. We recommend this job on school owned instruments to prevent thin spots in the brass. Parts are included in price.
