My horn plays like the day I bought it

June 20, 2024

Alan, aka "the Horn Doctor" did a real number on my aging P Mauriat alto. He gave it the full work-up: new pads, chemical bath, checked all the springs and rods and this thing feels brand new. I couldn't be happier. He's the man to get your horn back to tip-top shape.

My daughter came to me with the words, “My flute is broke!” My first thought is where the heck am I gonna find someone to fix it. Well I can’t say how excited I was to find him, The Horn Doctor! I called Alan, and he was so friendly and nice. He had it fixed in 2 Days! And fair price too!! We will definitely be back for all our repairs!!


The tradition of fine instrumental care continues

Thanks to the "Second Winds Ensemble" here in McMinnville, we learned of Alan just in time--my clarinet had become disabled, and I was envisioning a long trip to either Salem or Portland for repair. Alan not only ushered us into his workshop--only two miles away--but renewed the whole culture and history of care for instruments that has uplifted the musical arts for centuries. He was able to quickly restore my instrument, and added insights into reed and mouthpiece combinations that I had never considered. He has a complete kit of tools and technique, not only to repair my instrument, but to offer suggestions for better learning and more enjoyable playing. Thank you, Alan.


Great work for a fair price

I have a custom Yamaha Z trumpet that needed a thorough inspection & cleaning. After meeting and speaking and playing with Alan a couple of times, I was confident I could trust him with my instrument. Glad I did. He did a great job and even replaced water key corks, valve pads, and made some good suggestions for future cosmetic work. He also restores donated instruments and gets them into the hands of music educators with students in need of them. Prices are competitive, and the work speaks for itself.

Dependable and Amazing Work!

I am a MS/HS Band teacher in Oregon. I've been working with Alan for a few months now and I am so happy with the instruments brought to our schools. Alan works so hard to find the best deals and top-of-the-line instruments and materials. Any repairs needed were taken care of quickly and professionally. You will not be disappointed with the results!
