About Matt Stohrer
Saxophones are my passion.
I repair, sell, and trade saxophones to make a living. I take pride in my work, and I care deeply about what I do.
I learned my craft in New York City, working for Sam Ash Music on the famed Music Row, 48th St. in Times Square, Manhattan where I started as a coffee-running apprentice and worked my way up to head woodwind repairman of their flagship store. After working for Sam Ash, I opened a small saxophone specialty shop in Brooklyn where I repaired many horns to exacting standards for the best and brightest of New York’s saxophone crowd and also bought and sold vintage horns and mouthpieces. I had a view of the Manhattan skyline from my roof in an old warehouse by the Gowanus canal, and I was busier than I knew what to do with.
But something was missing- personal space, clean air, a yard, a place to work on my car, seeing the stars at night, space for some hobbies. So one day in 2010 we picked up and moved to beautiful North Carolina, where we have a cozy and warm house in the woods between Durham and Hillsborough, and where in February 2012 my wife and I welcomed our first child into the world. Here, I continue to grow my business, learn new things and perfect my craft.
As a repairman, I service all saxophones (and only saxophones), with my specialty being high end, vintage and unusual saxophones done well for picky players. Estimates and advice are free.
I remain a small, one-man business repairing and selling saxophones and saxophone-related gear. I remain committed to my ideals and doubt I will ever grow much beyond a one-man shop. I believe in personal interaction and a customer relationship built on shared love of the saxophone. Advice will always be free.
To contact me, send an email to email@example.com, or call me directly at 919-901-1191. If I don’t pick up, I’ve probably got a saxophone in my hands, so be sure to leave a message.
Thank you for stopping by my website. I am always working to improve my craft and my business. If you have suggestions, information, or material that could help make me a better repairman or this a better website for the musical community, please feel free to get in touch. Just be careful- if we start talking saxophones, I might talk your ear off.
