Tel 07977 011950

Summer shutdown .  A change to my previous dates. I have the opportunity to go and work for a time in Florence Italy. Studying with a Burin Intaglio engraver. These opportunities come up if your lucky once in a lifetime. . This means Im now back at work repairing harmonicas until 22nd August. This will give me a week to complete the work on new arrivals before I leave for Italy. I will be returning in October. So if you have a harp that needs fixing etc send them in before 22nd August.  I will not be presenting at this years Harmonica UK Festival in October as I wont have time to prepare material.  I am planning to attend the festival to take some classes and hopefully improve my playing. If you are going i will see you there.        

Hi John - A great big Thank you for your participation in The Chromatic Weekend. It was a pleasure to meet you at the weekend and attend your workshop. I regret not being able to go to all your workshops you have a great manner about you and explain things easily to people. Your workshops were highly informative, fun and captivating. We have heard so many positive comments about you Well done!I hope to see you again perhaps at Bristol festival? Kind Regards  Katrina and the NHL Chromatic Weekend team 

If you have an old harmonica that:

  • Just needs a good clean. (using ultrasonic cleaners)
  • An ebay purchase that doesnt quite play right.  
  • Inherited your grandad's old harmonica and want it refurbished like new
  • Need your harmonica tuned
  • Comb replaced (split Pearwood combs)
  • Reed replacement
  • Windsaver replacement  
  • Nailed Reed plates modified to screws,  
  • Chromatic slide sticking
  • etc etc

then you are in the right place.

I have a busy youtube channel. Lots of videos of restorations of vintage harmonica equipment, tips and general info. Subscribe to my channel for regular updates.  Here's a taster of a 1930s nail press restoration.

Over the summer I moved into my new workshop. This is much better with a lot more space for customers to visit and hold repair workshops.  

Our simple postal service means you just pop it into the post to me and I will give you a call back once its arrived to let you know whats what. We cathen discuss your options and costs. If ok, I will proceed and if its uneconomical to repair I can send it back in the post to you. AT NO CHARGE. (except the cost to post it back  -see note below.) .Its that simple. If you have any questions just give me a call on 07977 011950. Thank john

please note that due to hygene if I need to try the harmonica out I will have to clean it and try it and then clean it and seal it to send it back to you. This will incur a small charge depending on the model of the instrument.

"Hi John
Harmonicas  received, What can I say.  You are true Master of your trade

Have played them all at a session on the Island wonderful comments from guys who know their music. I have had a few bad repair jobs done, which made me a bit wary to try others. I will be sending all my cleaning/repair work to you in the future. I would strongly recommend your services to others. Yours Aye. Hugh Hainey "  - -read more comments /reviews
