Shopping >Mid-South Music
Joe and Debbie offer the best instrument repair and most affordable music store prices EVER!. If you need repairs to your instrument- brass, woodwind, percussion, string or custom options or a new instrument or great advice on instruments, you need to give these people a call. I was a band director for 9 years and they never let me down. Joe even made a 4 valve convertible euphonium for me- now that is awesome! I have known them and done business with them since 1993 and I highly recommend them. 5 Stars- Bigtime.
High Quality / Reasonable Prices. I was the band director at Harding Academy, a local private school in Memphis for 31 years. During that time I did thousands of dollars worth of business with Mid-South Music. I found the owners, Joe and Debbie, to be honest, hardworking people who provided reasonably priced, high quality products and repair. If you want that old tuba to look and play like brand new; or that clarinet to speak easily; or whatever you need. This is the place to go. I can recommend them to you without hesitation! --- Barry Lumpkin
Hands down the best instrument repair shop!. I am a band director at a Memphis area independent school and have known Joe and Debbie (the owners) for quite some time. They may not remember this but my first instrument purchase was with them when I was in Junior High School in the late 80's. At the time, they had a store on Summer Ave. in Memphis and offered the best prices and service in the city for instruments, accessories, and repairs. From the minute you walked into their store, you were treated like a friend and it was obvious that they had a genuine concern for helping you. Since their move to Fayette county, I will admit to trying other repair shops in town because they were a little closer; but I eventually went back to Mid-South music because of their unparalleled professionalism, speedy service, and excellent workmanship. Their shop is about 1/2 hour outside of town but it is worth the drive if you want your repairs done right, finished quickly, and at a price that is more than fair. I trust them with my own personal instruments as well as those of my students. Give them a try as well, you won't regret it!
Mid-South Music rocks. Although we did not purchase our daughter?s instrument from Mid-South Music, we needed last minute repairs. The instrument was repaired while we waited and we were charged a fair price. The technical acumen was evident and the shop was equipped with everything needed to perform the repairs needed. I will be recommending Mid-South Music in the future. Besides the repairs, we bought reeds and many other accessories from the store on site. Thank you Mid-South Music, you made our day!
Superior craftsmanship, integrity, and sensitivity to the owner's needs. Mid-South has established a high-quality reputation nation-wide among musicians. The owner is qualified to perform exacting repairs on rare instruments, and solid and affordable repairs on budget instruments. In addition, the owner's integrity is superior, and I would trust him with any work at any budget. He is one of the few in the business about whom I can make this unreserved recommendation: Tell him your budget and then to use his judgment. He will discuss the options and work with you to determine how to use the budget most effectively. For bringing older instruments to good playing condition within a reasonable budget, there is no-one better in the business, anywhere. Recommended highly. I had Mid-South peform playability repairs and modifications to a rare Holton tuba, and the result exceeded my (high) expectations. The slides are perfect, the valves are perfect, and the finish work maintained sensitivity to the history of the instrument. All that fit within a budget that would have been a serious limitation for most other high-end repair shops.
THE best place to buy ot repair a horn..hands down!.
I recently had my B&S-made rotary Bflat tuba restored by Mid-South Music. Their abilities and capabilities are, simply put, unsurpassed in the field of brass and woodwind sales, restoration, and repair. Besides designing and installing new valve linkage that is absolutely silent, dents in hard-to-reach areas of the instrument were quickly removed that I had previously assumed would require a lot of heavy expense and unsoldering.
A town with a name like "Williston" sounds like its way out in the sticks somewhere, but actually they're less than an hour from the Memphis International Airport. I've bought other instruments from Mid-South Music in the past. Not only do they accept the major credit cards, but they offer easy financing through a nationwide lending institution that features 90 days same as cash.
For student musicians' parents who are looking for brand new instruments, Mid-South Music has done a really great job of seeking out and offering really high-quality instruments - sometimes with not-particularly high-profile brand names - that are incredibly good quality and incredibly great values. Of course, no one can beat their prices on fully-restored used name-brand student instruments.
Most of the upscale suburban band programs in the Memphis area seem to purchase new or restored tubas, sousaphones, euphoniums, harmony clarinets, tenor/baritone saxophones, bassoons, and even percussion instruments from Mid-South Music - as well as using Mid-South Music to maintain all of their school-owned instruments.
