Encore Instrument Repair: Dayton Musician's Service Since 1986

Finding Our Permanent Home...

Hello All!

As you may have recently read, buried in this article in our local Dayton Daily News, the building where our shop is located has been sold.  With our goals no longer aligned with our landlord, we've decided to find new permanent location that can continue to serve you.  I'm happy to say we've found that spot, and are having our grand opening there on Sunday, May 15th, to coincide with the "Third on Third" Arts Fest that literally happens just outside our new front door at 16 Bates Street. We welcome you all out to see our new space.

This new location is bigger, brighter, allows our customers to have a view of the repair shop floor, and gives us a lobby where we can finally offer musician essentials and accessories. With our new shopkeeper, Dustie Pitstick, former owner of ReCreate we have his retail experience to help us launch that beautifully.

For those of you who have instruments currently with us, be assured we have taken great care in transporting them to the new shop.  Thank for your patience with us as we have indeed been a bit behind schedule on our repairs.  Preparing a space and moving is no joke!  We've had a lot of sleepless nights and long hours in getting it ready for our big day. 

Hope to see you soon!

Jeremy & the Staff of Encore Instrument Repair.


Celebrating 30 years!

"It's hard to believe it's been that long!", says Jess Nicely, our lead tech, who together with his wife Lana founded Dayton Musicians Service in 1986. 

The business endured plenty of changes over the years, but the largest have come in the last year, with the addition of Jeremy Mix as managing partner, a re-branding and the move from the long-standing Wyoming St. location to Downtown Dayton at 111 E. 4th St, Suite 102.

"I find the volume of business that Jess has serviced since 1986 to be quite the legacy to continue" says Jeremy Mix, "Over 30,000+ service tickets were fulfilled in that timeframe. With that in mind, I also find it encouraging to know that despite the naysayers, our location change has not been detrimental to service volume, but rather quite the drastic opposite. We've experienced phenomenal growth - enough that we've added several new techs to handle the deluge!  With that we've also added some new skillsets that will have us venturing into new areas in the near future."

We thank you all for the continued trust you place in us. We love our customers and looking forward to doing business with them for many years to come.
