Welcome to your Midwestern Source for Band Instrument Repairs, Custom Work and Accessories!
Located in Eastern Iowa, just 10 miles West of Clinton, Iowa on the Mississippi River and 30 miles North of the Quad Cities, the Stofer Farm is a busy place! Since January 2008, the Barn has become a local icon. We receive numerous visits throughout the year from musicians seeking repair services, or to have custom work performed to tailor an instrument to their specific needs, and those who are looking for that special instrument or accessory, not available elsewhere.
Between working in the shop and performing, such as with the RiverCity Dixie, Racing, Marching Society Goodtime Brass Band, Lee stays pretty busy. While performing recently at an outdoor festival, the local fire department was offering rides in the "cherry picker" on the ladder truck. Someone got a bright idea, and the lead trumpet player and I found ourselves soaring to new heights in our musical careers......... Holding the tempo steady while swaying 50 feet in the air over the band was a challenge (yes we were playing!), but the show must go on!
