I wanted to pick up a new lyre screw for my yani alto sax. I saw they had a nice looking shop running there. So i dropped off my sax for the evening for some basic repairs. I haven't had it repaired for two months. Didnt need anything major, but i have had roughly 60 performance hours on it since the last repair.
picked it up the next day and it plays really well. Solid job with a quick turn around. So if you want a good sax repair in Houston, teaxas, try Fleming Instrument Repair!

They also seem to have a very competative consignment program there. "A little known secret" the repair guy said. Basically, this mainly repair shop/smaller store had like 4 mark vi altos, an sba alto, and 3-4 mark vi tenors! All were repaired very well and in great condition. In like the 5-7 grand range i believe. I shortly played on the sba and one of the vi altos. Felt like a really great setup!

Anyway, so looking for a repair in houston or want a place to buy a great vintage selmer with a pro setup, check out Fleming in Houston, Texas!

Yeah, they dont advertise as having such high end stuff. They did also have a lot of nice looking clarinets and flutes too.
These were on display. A trumpet player came in for a repair while i was there, but i didnt see a lot of brass on display.

I bought a horn from a guy that had it overhauled there. Good job. I feel the keys are set too high, but that's me. They do some fantastic dent work. Not even a ripple even and they didn't bother with unnecessary spot lacquering.
