Modifying Your Instrument.

Do you love your Instrument, but aren’t entirely stoked on how it sounds when you plug it in? Or maybe you’re having trouble keeping it in tune or you have more string breakage that you'd expect. Maybe you need to add a pickup to your banjo or mandolin.

 

Upgrading your instrument is the solution to get the results you want out of the instrument you love. At the Garage, personalizing your instrument's electronics and hardware is right in our wheel-house. Bring your instrument in for a consultation and start the conversation that can bring new life to your playing!
