Welcome

Welcome to your Midwestern Source for Band Instrument Repairs, Custom Work and Accessories!

Located 150 miles west of Chicago near U.S. 30 and Interstate 80, Lee Stofer Music is your Midwestern source of Band Instrument Repairs, Custom Work, and Instruments and Accessories not found elsewhere. In May we will
celebrate being in Iowa for 9 years. We are thankful for the wonderful and supportive community we enjoy here in the Upper Midwest, as well as the many visitors we have during the year.

We are so thankful for the many loyal customers in this area, across the US, and indeed around the world. In 2014, we did business with people in Europe, North and South America, Asia, and for the first time, Africa. Building upon the success of 2014, the plan for 2015 is to completely eliminate the backlog of instrument restorations, and finally (!!!) build several of my own instruments. I have been very, very pleased when playing my prototype CC tuba throughout 2014, but more must be built, and the time is now.

I will accept a limited number of restorations, but only aafter the current obligations are met. The "Instruments in Process" list has provided some interesting results, as I have received inquiries and requests, and finished and sold instruments before they ever had a separate ad on the website. As always, if there is an instrument that you are looking for, please let me know, as one may be lurking here, but just not on any list yet.

I think that 2015 is the year to follow your dreams and aspirations, and I wish each of you a meaningful and productive year, with a good measure of fun, too! Let me know when I may be of service.
