Roberto Romeo: head of the shop
Roberto's is world renowned for expert repairs on all woodwinds. Whether your instrument needs a small adjustment or a major overhaul, Roberto's team will put it in optimal playing condition. All repairs are guaranteed and overhauls come with a 6-month warranty.
Roberto Romeo was born in Verona, Italy and moved to New York to play Jazz in 1982. To support himself, Roberto worked as an apprentice under Saul Fromkin, one of the best woodwind repairman in the business. When Fromkin moved to Florida in 1989, Roberto started his own business, quickly becoming a legend among saxophone players for his skilled work.
"I believe my honesty in business and the excellence I strive for in my repairs has been the key to my success over the last 15 years. There is no substitute for knowledge, expertise, and experience. I take the greatest pride in maintaining instruments. This means remaining focused and putting forth the same amount of effort whether making a small adjustment or performing a major overhaul on an instrument. It does not matter if you are professional musician or not. I work on all saxophones with the same dedication. By possessing an in-depth knowledge of woodwinds, and by personally getting to know the players and their style, I'm best able to keep their instrument in optimal playing condition. Nothing is more frustrating than playing on a stuffy or leaking horn. You can't play your best."
Once a one-man shop, Roberto's has expanded into a

Long time customers and friends include Joe Lovano,
