The Fixing Hut works with a one week turnaround for a standard service

The Fixing Hut takes every instrument on an individual basis. No two instruments and repairs are the same and we create a bespoke repair for your requirements

Having said that, we know our customers always appreciate knowing the price brackets. These are listed below

Plan your visit: It is impossible to give exact quotes without seeing the patient! We need your instrument in hand in the workshop - book a free consultation and bring it in. The pricing below is to give you an idea. After an individual quotation is given to you upon your visit to The Fixing Hut, we'll always seek your consent before work commences

When you leave an instrument with us, you'll receive a delivery note, confirming this, whilst we do what we do best. When your instrument is ready, we can send Whatsapp videos of the final play test

Upon collection, you'll get a receipt with your 3 month warranty and a breakdown explained of the work, plus advisories for future maintenance

Offers & Trade-ins: At The Fixing Hut you can claim many offers. From a free music lesson with each service to 25% off of future instrument services. You can part exchange an old instrument you no longer need towards the cost of a current repair or service. You can donate to our underprivileged kids scheme in Southampton. So many options.

The big one (A full strip down and rebuild)

Most instruments haven't seen one of these often. For those unloved vintages found in lofts. For the 30 year old instrument discarded until needed again. A broken instrument with serious dents

Sometimes, it's simply an instrument that needs a full re-pad
