Talk With Lisa to Get Started Today!

I have a Bachelors degree in saxophone performance from the University of the Witwatersrand. I play in the Treasure Valley Concert Band. I have worked as a Band Instrument Repair Technician in the Treasure Valley for over 20 years with Dunkley Music and am now working for myself from my office on Caswell Street in Boise. I offer free pickup and delivery to Treasure Valley schools, and I want to note that I value student and professional musicians’ repair needs equally.

Ultrasonic Cleaning Tank

I use an ultrasonic cleaning tank to demolish the tough deposits that form on the inside and outside of band instruments. These tanks are industrial quality, and work hard on the deposits while leaving your instrument in pristine working condition. I'm a lifelong instrument repair expert, and I'm ready to help.
