Our Background

Mike Nye's Instrument Repair, located in Tempe, Arizona since 1996, strives to do the highest quality work at a reasonable price.


We are laser focused to give you only the repairs needed. Nothing more, nothing less. We do our very best to keep things affordable without compromising quality. We only carry accessories we need to, which helps us keep your costs down. NOBODY in the valley stays as current with training, tools, equipment and techniques. It also helps keep the turn around down.

Staying current with the latest, state-of-the-art techniques, methods and tooling, along with attending national and regional NAPBIRT* sponsored classes, keeps us on the cutting edge of instrument repair, and provides you the best work possible. We offer comprehensive service on all brass and woodwind instruments and also do emergency work as well. We do instrument repairs for Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, Scottsdale, Chandler, Gilbert and the entire East Valley.

Lastly, we sell new and used instruments. I will not sell anything I wouldn't play. Please see recommendations page for what those are. We also sell tons of accessories that make great Christmas, Birthday or year round gifts to that budding musician in your life.
