Hear what some players have to say about Horn Improvement:

"The crew at Horn Improvement consistently deliver the best woodwind repairs I have found in Southern California. Watching them work is like going back to the days of skilled craftmanship. If you want your instrument repaired the way you would do it if you had the time, tools, and skills, then go to Horn Improvement."

I have known and worked with 3 true masters of the horn improvement craft in my life as a saxophone and flute player and after moving back to southern California, I needed to find number four and Jeff is the man. He is the real deal and I know I can count on him and his team for all my woodwind needs. They are also very quick about getting reeds and such to you by mail if you don't live so close. Highly recommended!!

I've been taking all of my woodwinds to Horn Improvement for several years now, and I couldn't conceive of going anywhere else. The attention to important details is astounding; whether it be the gold plating and complete reconstructing of a vintage selmer alto sax, the invention of a new key for the bass sax, or just getting that one key on the bass clarinet to feel perfectly even and harmonious with the rest of the instrument. These craftsmen listen to what your needs are, and always come up with a solution. When you are at the shop for a quick repair or to make a reed purchase, or even if you are just dropping off an instrument for an overhaul, you are welcomed warmly by the fine staff. This is truly the premier repair shop on the West Coast!

The Horn Improvement crew are amazing! Where else can you walk in and get the best modifications, repairs, or whatever is needed, even at the last minute! With my busy schedule I never know when I am going to need something right away. The Horn Improvement staff is always there to help me! With all the instruments I play, they say, "It's like painting an aircraft carrier, as soon as you finish, you have to start at the other end!" Highly recommended for all your woodwind and student's needs.

"I can't thank Horn Improvement enough for the introduction to Backun barrels and bells.  I purchased two barrels and a bell for my clarinet and my sound is more alive and responsive than ever before.
Along with their fine products, integrity and service I highly recommend Horn Improvement!"

Dan St. Marseille
Woodwind recording artist

"It's my fault.  I told a few hundred musician and online sax guys to check out the boys at Horn Improvement.   Now I can't get my horn fixed half as fast, but I do know half the people at the counter on any given day so I have someone to talk to while waiting.  Thanks for keeping me together Jeff!"
