I can tell you one you shouldn't go to in Bklyn, IMO... (trying to offload his junk on craigslist); in NYC near Lincoln Centre Andy Frobig seems OK.

Shelly Tanabe at Windplayer Services is in Queens.

David Santiago at Sam Ash in Times Square will also take good care of you, particularly for high-end flute repair.

There's a recent opening in Brooklyn, Brooklyn Woodwinds and Brass. It's located at 6 Bedford Ave (near the G train Nassau stop). Phone is: (718) 874-3434.

Eric Downs is the tech, and he's overhauled several saxophones of mine. Always an excellent job, and stands by his work.

Hope this helps.

My vote for a local tech is Shelly Tanabe. As Matt noted, she's in Queens -- Flushing to be precise.

[rolleyes] Good grief! Any good repair techs? In Brooklyn? We're lucky there are any anywhere else!!

The best one in Brooklyn moved to North Carolina last year. Something about shopping for groceries too much at Fresh Direct and a dearth of free range diesel VW's here in Brooklyn.

Now the hard part...getting anybody outside greater New York to hire a saxophone player.

Glenn Guidone, in Belrose, LI, minutes from the Queens border.
He's an excellent tech & great guy. (Also a burning tenor player)
I think "Barry Sachs" will agree w/me.
