Band Instrument Repair Service Brass Woodwind
At Tatum Music, we are famous for our quality repair shops.  We have full service repair facilities at both our Longview and Tyler locations, both open six days a week. Our repairmen have a combined experience of over 115 years, and it shows in every horn that goes through our shop.  As the premier factory authorized dealer and repair facility in East Texas, Tatum Music performs thousands of repairs each year for individuals and school systems.
