Jeff's Woodwind Shop is one of the few comprehensive woodwind repair shops in the Northeast United States that specializes in service to professional players. Orchestral and chamber musicians from around the Northeast and Midwest have chosen Jeff's Woodwind Shop as the place to get their equipment serviced. Areas of speciality include the repair of handmade flutes and piccolos, repair and improvement of professional saxophones, and restoration of grenadilla instruments. Jeff's Woodwind Shop is one of the few shops in the world with extensive experience repairing flutes from the critical transition period of the mid 19th century
While there are many fine repair shops where your instrument will be made to play how it was designed, there are very few shops where your instrument will be repaired to play how you require. Jeff's Woodwind Shop is one of these shops: a haven for players who are very sensitive to how their instrument plays.

Jeff Dening has been repairing musical instruments for over 2 decades. He has worked in and operated repair shops in 6 states, training with some of the most discriminating and demanding technicians in the field. As a concert saxophonist by training he has a certain obsession with studying and improving saxophones of all shapes and sizes.
