Professional Instrument Repairs

FluteRepairKeep your instrument in prime condition by having it serviced at Ellis Music!

A list of repair services provided is available to view.

Repair estimates are free, whether the instrument was purchased from Ellis Music Company or elsewhere. Customers can request a loaner instrument to use while their instrument is being fixed, which helps to ensure that valuable practice time is not lost.

There are multiple ways you can get your instrument to our repair shop...

  • Drop off the instrument at our store in Bethel
  • Feel free to stop by anytime the store is open and a repair technician can assess your instrument. If you want to work with a specific repair technician, we strongly suggest calling in advance to schedule an appointment. Please note that our string repair technician is currently available for appointments Monday through Wednesday only. Ellis Music is located conveniently close to Interstate 89. Refer to our contact page for business hours and directions.

  • Schedule a pickup at a VT/NH school
  • To schedule a repair pickup at a school in Vermont or New Hampshire during the academic year, either call Ellis Music or click on the appropriate link below and complete our online pickup request form. Rental instruments can be picked up and dropped off through the music department at your local school. Privately owned (non-rental) instruments can often be handled this way also, but it is your responsibility to make arrangements with the school's instrumental music teacher in advance.

  • Ship the instrument via UPS or USPS
  • We strongly suggest using a shipping method that allows you to track your instrument. You may also want to purchase shipping insurance. Print the PDF form below, fill in your information, and put the form inside your instrument case with the instrument. Then pack the instrument case securely in a shipping box and take it to the shipper of your choice. (Be sure to read the important addressing information on the PDF form.)


Our shop utilizes the latest cleaning technology in the industry with our Ultrasonic Cleaner®. This machine uses high-pitched sound waves to remove debris more effectively than by traditional methods. It is also a "greener" approach to cleaning, as the chemicals used are biodegradable, making it safe to the environment, technicians, and most importantly, customers and their instruments.

To better understand work that was completed on your instrument, feel free to review some common repair terminology.
