Our customers say it best.

"Ed is the best!! I've been taking all of my horns to him for decades. They're better than new when I get them back. Ed not only expertly handles the routine repairs he has also done some custom work for me, sometimes even improving on the original horn design. He always takes his time and does the job right. Ed will sit with you as long as you need to in order to get things exactly the way you want it. Great work consistently and always at reasonable prices. Again, Ed is the Best!!"

"Coles Music Service is fantastic. I've been taking all my instruments to them for over 10 years. Their work is meticulous, they listen to your needs, and they understand musicians. I wouldn't go anywhere else"

"Hi Ed, Just wanted to send you a short note to say thanks for the great repair on my cornet. I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to have you so close to Rowan. Your work continues to be outstanding (you have now done work on every one of my horns) and I always recommend you to every brass player I know. Good luck with the rest of this year and I’ll see you next summer!"

“I’ve known Ed for many years. He is an extremely talented and consciences repair man. He is also a gentleman, and a friend. He most recently repaired my tenor that had some leaks that were difficult to diagnose. It now plays better than ever. Ed has my highest recommendation.” Best Regards,
