After 19 years playing the horn I know its hard to find a good brass repairman. So when I obtained a 44 year old Conn 8D in serious need of repair, I wanted a professional. I came across Kevin at North Georgia Horn works through the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians. As soon as I walked into his shop, any apprehension I may have had was gone! Numerous brass instruments lined the walls as well as a varity of repair tools assuring me that Kevin was more than qualified for the job! He has an extensive knowlegde of brass repair and was great about informing me of what I could expect as an end result. Kevin also gave me the different options of repair and gave suggestions that may benefit my instrument. The pricing was very reasonable! My restored horn looks and sounds better than I could have ever imagined! The many severe and hard to reach dents were gone and smoothed out. Kevin went above and beyond to give brand new life and a second chance to an old horn. I can't thank him enough and recommed him without hesitation to anyone in need of instrument repair!

My daughter's French Horn broke leaving her in a bind. She needed her instrument for the next evening. We brought the horn to North Ga Horn Works and spoke to Kevin. He diagnosed the problem promptly and accurately. Kevin treated this as an emergency situation. The horn was repaired within 2hrs. He went the extra mile. Kevin is very professional and college degreed in his field. His prices are reasonable too. He saved the day! We highly recommend Kevin to everyone.

I got more than I asked for (in a good way) when I recently had my older horn into N GA Horn Works. Kevin fixed a brace that had been broken for over 30 years. Several others had attempted to repair it over the years and failed. He did the work I requested and the price was very reasonable. I will be going back when I have the need for additional repair work.
