Customer Testimonials


“Mr Gary Mills is an active member of HMS Sultan Volunteer Band. He undertakes all our woodwind instrument repairs and servicing. These include Flutes, Clarinets, Alto, Tenor and Baritone Saxophones. He approaches his work in a professional manner and to a very high standard. I have no hesitation in recommending him to you as a very capable instrument repairer.”

- Ian Naylor, Instructional Officer 1 Music (MOD(N)), HMS Sultan Volunteer Band - 01/11/2018


“Gary Mills repaired and refurbished a Mark VI Tenor Saxophone, to an excellent standard. My band members are now using his services, to repair and refurbish their own instruments. We will not hesitate to use his services again.”

- BdCSgt. A. Miller, HMS Heron/Osprey Volunteer Band - 01/11/2018


“Recently I gave Mr Mills a G treble flute which has been badly designed since its inception. Several other repairers have had sporadic attempts to make it playable. I am happy to report that the Instrument is, at last, working as well as ever it is likely to do so; whatever else needs to be done cannot be done so without a complete reset of the whole keywork - making it a new instrument. Mr Mills’ work has achieved something others have failed to do.”

- Lamond Clelland, The Vincian Trio - 01/11/2018


“Since I moved to Wiltshire I have been very fortunate to meet Gary Mills who has completely renovated a number of Buffet system Bassoons and re-plated and re-padded my 7465 Heckel. I could not be happier with his workmanship and almost as importantly his good-natured and friendly company. I would recommend him most highly.”

- Martin Gatt - 01/11/2018


“Just a few lines to say a big “Thank-you” for your recent work on my Mark V! tenor. The constant travel on aeroplanes had certainly taken its toll. Having collected it and used it on a gig the whole instrument seemed to spring to life. It has never played better - all down to you! I look forward to seeing you again soon, My Buffet Prestige clarinet is next in line! Once again many, many thanks.”

- Mike Snelling, Chris Barber Band - 01/11/2018
