Instrument repair was the first service offered by Twigg Musique, in the times of Maurice Twigg. The repair shop launched the company and remains a key service with the largest technician team in the Province, and among the best in North America.

To guarantee, year after year, a high quality service to musicians of all levels, to professionals and to music schools, Twigg Musique leverages the expertise of its workshop team, but also calls on younger generation technicians to foster innovation.

The work done in our repair shop is recognized and certified by numerous renowned instrument manufacturers such as Yamaha, Selmer Paris ProShop and Conn-Selmer, Buffet Group Wind Instruments, Adams & Powell. Flute repairs and conversions with Straubinger system are performed by specially trained technicians.

Close collaboration with these instrument makers allows the workshop to use original parts and to perform repairs according to manufacturer specifications.
