The Repair Shop at Paige’s Music – FAQs

We often get questions about having an instrument repaired at Paige’s Music. Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that will be helpful if you are considering sending in your instrument for service.

How Do I Get My Instrument Repaired?

Sending an instrument into Paige’s Music for repair is a very easy process. Here’s what you need to do:

Summer Is Ending – Make Sure Your Instrument Is Ready

We recommend that you send your instrument in for a check-up at least 2 times a year to keep it in proper playing condition. And what better time to do that then during summer break while you may have some down time. And if you need a loaner to use while we have your instrument, we have you covered.*

Bring your instrument by our store M-F 10-6 and Sat. 10-4, or give us a call to see if we have visits scheduled for your school over the summer. Have questions? Call us at 1.317.577.3415 or drop us an email at

Enjoy your time off and don’t forget to practice!

*Loaner instruments guaranteed for all active rentals and service policies only. Loaners for general repair customers dependent upon our loaner instrument inventory.

Repair Shop Tails – New Life!

Once again, we want to share with you an interesting repair that came through our shop.  We recently had a vintage Martin cornet come in that the customer received as a beginning student in the 1960’s. It had sat for some time and was in need of some TLC.  Our Brass Repair Coordinator, Spencer Guyer, did the work on this repair and brought this instrument back to life!  As you can see from the pictures below, the final repair was stunning.

The End of An Era

As we start a new year we want to begin by recognizing the ending of an era in the ongoing story of the Paige’s Music Repair Shop. As 2019 came to a close, our long time Repair Shop Director, Tim Roethler, retired after 42 years of service. Tim built and led our repair department since May of 1977. His leadership of over 4 decades was instrumental in building what we believe to be one of the premier repair facilities in the nation. He will be sorely missed and we can’t thank him enough for all that he’s done in the past and how well he has us setup for the future. Well done, Tim!

Below is one of “Staff Spotlights” with Tim. Take a few minutes to learn how he got the repair shop started and how it’s grown over the years.

Contest Season Starts Next Month – Is Your Instrument Ready?


It’s not too late, but time is running out. Contest Season is almost here!

January through April is a really busy time of year for school music students. Many of the annual contests and festivals happen during this time of the year. These include:

  • Solo & Ensemble Contest
  • Jazz Band Festival
  • Junior/Middle School Organizational Festivals
  • High School Organizational Festivals

Your performance level and the success of your organization depend on a properly playing instrument. If your instrument has not been looked over by a technician in the last 6 months you may be overdue.

Send your instrument in for proper maintenance to help avoid small problems from turning into something larger at an inappropriate time. It could help you get to the next level during the upcoming contest season.

If you’d like to send your instrument in for us to check, we have a step-by-step guide on how to do that right here.

As always, please give us a call if you have any questions.
