Like any service, the best critic is the one who has used the service. Here’s what a few of our customers have to say about our repair services:

"Alfie did a wonderful job on my bow."
Broddy Olson, violinist, Edmonton Symphony Orchestra

"I’ve trusted the maintenance and repair of my 1850 circa acoustic bass to Myhre’s Music since 1998. Their experience is evident. I send all my students to the store if they’re looking for a string bass; I know they’ll be set up with a good, playable instrument at a reasonable cost."
Mike Lent, Bassist, producer, recording engineer
