We don't buy secondhand instruments at DOTS, but we do have a secondhand page on the website where you are welcome to advertise for free. Click on the tab that says 'sell your instrument here' and fill in the required information. The ad will appear on our site. However, there is no facility for you to edit or remove the ad, so please remember to email us if you would like the ad taken down!



Our woodwind repairer, Alex de Renzi, visits us on Saturdays. She will do small repairs on site, but generally takes instruments away to repair in her workshop, usually returning them the following Saturday. She is a very experienced repairer, and her charges are extremely competetive. You can reach her on 07799 363374.


NEW: Expert repairs for all brass instruments

Luke Woodhead is the reason that many of the world's professional horn players have their instruments in such fine condition. For the last 7 years, Luke has used the workshop at DOTS as his London base. His business is so busy and successful that he now needs bigger premises, so sadly he is leaving us and opening a new workshop from 1 December 2016 at


It is a short walk from both underground and overground, and will also boast a sofa and cups of coffee!

His phone number remains the same.
