His 30 years of experience working on all levels of double reed instruments started with his training at Ponte Music Company in NYC and continues through coursework, seminars and membership in professional associations. He is a professional member of both IDRS and NAPBIRT and has presented lectures on double reed repair through both organizations.

Brian's goal as your repair tech is to bring out the unique and best personality in your instrument while maintaining the integrity of the instruments manufacture. He regularly works on a wide range of double reed instruments for new and long term clients. His clientele includes major orchestra members, universities, the US Military and performers from all 50 states.

Brian attended both The Juilliard School and Manhattan School of Music, with focus on oboe and bassoon performance. He has performed professionally on both oboe and bassoon on recordings, commercials, soundtracks, in live concert and as a soloist.

Quality of the Work

Only the highest quality replacement parts and materials are used in the repair of your instrument. When needed, original parts from the manufacturer are used whenever possible. The highest grade bladder skin pads, soft white kid pads and cross grain cut cork pads are used. We employ up to four different kinds of pad glue to closely match the original makers intentions, and have an extensive inventory of replacement parts and repair materials on hand at all times.

All Work Guaranteed

Your instrument will be repaired with an eye to the future. We want your instrument to function well for a long time to come. We guarantee that all repairs have been done to the highest professional standards. Instruments are fully checked for problems which may not be initially noticeable and we make our best effort to proactively attend to all repair issues needed.

Any problems that come up within 3 months of the repair that are directly linked to repairs made will be performed at no charge. If problems arise that are not linked to the repairs done during that period, we will do our best to keep additional costs to an absolute minimum.

All Brands Serviced

We have experience with all major brands of double reed instruments and many, many obscure brands as well. We hesitate to work on instruments which appear to be beyond their functional limit of usability. If your instrument is old, damaged, or of poor quality, we will explain various options, and help you choose a reasonable course of action. We recommend you send photos of your instrument if there is any question about its suitability for renovation.

Estimated Costs and Time

Charles Double Reeds will make informal repair estimates based on photos or descriptions of repairs needed; but all formal repair estimates must be made with the instrument here at our shop. We give accurate estimates of repair costs and stay within 10% of those estimates.

Repair time can vary with the extent of the repair and our work load. Simple repairs can be done while you wait or within a day of us receiving the instrument, but the time required for more extensive repairs will be quoted when the instrument is in our hands.
