The Minor Chord


When you buy an instrument at The Minor Chord, you also get the great ongoing support we are known for.

We can handle guitar restringing and minor adjustments here at the store—often while you wait. And we have our own band instrument repair shop where we can handle repairs like replacing pads and corks, adjusting springs and keys, and chemical cleaning of brass instruments.

But for more extensive repairs, we prefer to work with master instrument technicians who specialize in particular instrument categories and brands. You can trust your fine instrument to these experienced craftspeople. And although our customers rarely need it, our service partners can provide factory authorized warranty service for most of the instruments we sell including Fender, Ibanez, Martin, Taylor, Yamaha and David Webber.

Just drop off your instrument at our store. We will choose the appropriate repair technician, arrange for your repair, and call you when it's done.
