Services Offered

We offer repairs on most band and orchestra instruments. We also offer repairs on fretted instruments such as guitars and ukuleles.

Simple repair assessments are based on visual inspection. We are unable to give out actual estimates until we have seen and reviewed the work needed. Sometimes we don't know the extent of damage or repairs needed until we get the instrument apart.

Some instruments, especially low cost ones, may not be repairable or they may have repair costs that exceed the value of the instrument. We will notify you prior to commencing work whenever possible.

Unless you give us a 'not to exceed price' on repairs, we will not start repairs until we have your approval on the estimate.


Repair Contracts

Band and Orchestra rental contracts have the option of a maintenance/service contract. What is covered/not covered is available on our rentals page. Some items are discretionary by Mike’s Music. Abuse and failure to reasonably maintain the instrument is not covered. Accidental damage IS covered on current rentals.


Instrument Repairs Available

We are currently offering repair services on fretted instruments (acoustic, folk, classical, bass and electric guitars, ukuleles, banjo and mandolin), non fretted orchestral instruments (violin, viola, cello), and most band instruments (woodwind and brasswind, flute, trumpet, clarinet, oboe, saxophone, etc.).

Used Instrument Donations

Help us Help Local Music Programs

SUPPORT MUSIC IN OUR SCHOOLS! Mike’s Music instrument drive. The community donates used instruments, Mike’s refurbishes them, and gives to local schools.

What started as an anniversary celebration has become an ongoing community project for Mike’s Music. Mike's is giving back to the community that has supported them for over 20 years. Throughout the year, they collect used instruments to donate to the local schools for students who cannot afford to rent or purchase one.
Instruments in all conditions are welcome and Mike’s Music insures they are in playable condition before giving to the local schools in the Anchorage School District for use in their music programs.
Valuable/vintage and those instruments that are not usuable in the schools are sold after refurbishing, and the 'profit' is used to purchase instruments and/or supplies that the schools CAN use.

“We have students come in to purchase supplies for instruments they borrow from the schools; I have had so many of them tell me about the awful condition of the few instruments that are available. So, I thought, we can do something about that.” –Katrina Eldred
If you would like more information about this program, please call (694-6453), stop in and see us, or email at
