Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my repair cost?

That depends. Without seeing and handling the instrument, our technicians can’t give a proper repair estimate. Some issues may result from underlying problems that aren’t so obvious on the surface, and can cost more than expected.


Bring your instrument into the repair shop and our technicians will give you a free repair estimate.

How long will it take to repair my instrument?

Repairs can take anywhere from a few days to three weeks. Several factors can affect your wait time, including the time of year, availability of staff, and volume of pending repairs.


Please call us at (801) 226-1760 for an estimated completion time.

How often should I bring my instrument in for maintenance?

We recommend bringing your instrument in at least once a year for routine maintenance, especially if it’s regularly being played. 

Do you offer any warranty on your repairs?

We guarantee our repairs for up to 90 days after completion. If your instrument continues to have the same issues after repairing it, Summerhays will, at its discretion, work to resolve it.

  • Malicious or intentional damage

Are there any instruments you won't repair?

At their discretion, Summerhays repair technicians may decline to repair an instrument for a variety of reasons:

  • Availability of parts

  • The manufacturer no longer supports the model

  • The brand/manufacturer is defunct

  • The estimated cost of repair is higher than the value of the instrument

Our technicians may also decline to repair instruments from select brands, such as inexpensive products purchased from online retailers. This is largely due to their high failure rates and availability of parts.
