Dr Toot and Shoko (their flute specialist technician) recently completed a full re-pad/restoration on my well worn 40 year old American silver flute.Super job, now looks and plays better than new.Action beautifully regulated with extreme precision. And all done in only a few days and the bill was surprisingly good value.Highly recommended.A1 *****

Thank you Mr Toot for repairing and servicing my Tenor SA80 Selmer Saxophone. As soon as I met Sean, I knew I was putting my Saxophone in the best hands that I could have wished for. He changed a nightmare into a dream. My saxophone had been damaged and after it was repaired and serviced by Sean, the tone and response and ease of playing is better than it has ever been. Truly amazing and Truly Gifted. Thank you Sean and Mia, 1st Class!!!

Sean / Mia: Thank you for your kind words, Andrew. It was a joy working on your tenor sax. Please feel free to pop in to our shop for a visit anytime you are in Auckland.
I have had the pleasure of using Dr Toot for a couple of instruments. My first visit was for rejuvenation of a neglected tenor sax. After Sean had worked his magic, played better than ever, even better than new. I recently handed Sean a vintage 90 year old alto sax. The quality of the finish took my breath away. After his overhaul it really sings. I absolutely love it! Amazing refurbishment in only 3 days. Thanks Sean and Mia for your excellent and friendly service

The absolute BEST SERVICE you will ever find anywhere in auckland. Went to KBB music who quoted a $150 price tag and one month wait time for my students flute, Sean fixed it up with a couple of tweaks on the spot. Great personality, great conversation, and great service! Highly recommend for all instrumentalists!

Sean/Mia: We appreciate your feedback, and hopefully see you soon with your tuba ! Many thanks, Sean & Mia
I've played saxophone and woodwinds professionally worldwide for over 36 years and in that time I've yet to meet anyone better than Sean for servicing my horns. His work is impeccable as is the super prompt and courteous service that Mia provides. A great team that deliver the best woodwind repair service in NZ. They also have some excellent instruments for sale. Highly recommended to all. Sincerely, Alex Nyman

Sean/Mia: Thank you for your very kind words, Alex. It's always been a pleasure working with you and your very fine instruments.
Absolutely stoked with the level of service provided. I dropped my badly neglected tenor in on a Thursday after work, and had a phone call to say it was ready on the Sunday afternoon. And now it plays better than it ever has! Sean really went the extra mile with it. Thanks so much, i'll definately be back. Cheers, Jarrod.

Sean/Mia: Thank you for your kind feedback. All the best for your auction !
We have had amazing service from Dr Toot. We are thrilled with the repair and service of the Bb clarinet and especially delighted with the Custom A clarinet we purchased earlier this year. We know where to go to when we replace the Bb with a custom Bb, and yes, Sean, Elliot is asking for one already!! I have told him to start saving!! Many thanks for your wonderful service and advice.

Sean/Mia: Thank you for your kind feedback and support. Very happy that Elliot is enjoying his A clarinet.
Brilliant service, fast and friendly. Gave me options on the service of my 20 year old jupiter tenor sax and had it up and running like new in a couple of days. Bought it to him on a Sunday, ready by Tuesday. Thanks and look forward to returning for further transactions.
