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.
In October 2009, he established his London workshop at DOTS, after building and painting, rewiring and putting in plumbing and air vents, and we are now the new horn and brass repair venue for London, the UK, Europe and the world!
Luke is generally at DOTS on Wednesdays and Fridays, but it's a good idea to make contact with him if you have a repair you would like him to do - he's almost always very busy!

Luke's website is Or just give him a call on 07970 971520, or phone the shop on 020 7482 5424.

Learning to play?

Are you looking for musical instruction in the London area? Maybe you're a tutor looking to advertise your services. Our new tutor-finder service aims to introduce tutors and pupils with the minimum of effort.

If you find the cost of a new instrument is a problem we can help you to buy a second-hand instrument or rent one of ours. We can also help you if you want to sell an instrument.
