Connolly Musical Intrument Repairs - Brass and Woodwind repair specialists


Professional and reliable repairers of musical instruments

Welcome to Connolly Musical Instrument Repairs. We are a team of craftsmen who between us have over 70 years’ experience of repairing all types of woodwind and brass instruments. To find out more about us, read our story on the ‘about us’ page.


Connolly MIR is going through some major changes at the end of this month: Charlie is starting his well-earned retirement! But don't panic - Matt is still on hand to continue meeting all your musical instrument repair needs to the same high standards you've always been able to depend on. But what it will mean is that from 1st August 2015 onwards there'll be a new workshop where you can drop off and collect your instruments and new contact details (although during the transition we'll keep the old number and email active for some time). Please see below for messages from Charlie and Matt.

A message from Charlie

After over half a century of being on the bench repairing, I feel the time has finally arrived to hang my apron up and hand over the screwdriver to the next generation. Iím looking forward to spending time with my wife, children and grandchildren. Carole has already prepared a list of jobs for me around the house, which should keep me busy for quite some months to come!

Over the decades Iíve worked with and trained countless repairers Ė Matthew Sheward is among the very best of those. Iíve worked with him for 18 years, the past 6 of which have been alongside each other at Connolly Musical Instrument Repairs. So if youíve brought your instrument to us, thereís a 50:50 chance that Mattís the person who repaired it for you. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him as the person to take care of your instrument repairs into the future.

Itís been a pleasure serving you all for the past 52 years. Iíve met so many wonderful and talented musicians and made some amazing friendship along the way and I wish you all the very best for the future. I feel very lucky and privileged to have spent so long in a profession that feels more like a hobby to me than a job. Itís been a blast: over to you Matt!

Hi everyone, my aim during this next chapter in the MIR legacy is to continue the same great service to musicians and education authorities that we are already providing. To start with, the name of this new venture will be MIR Sheward Musical Instrument Repairs. As you can see I want to keep the MIR name alive for many years to come. The workshop will also have a new location not too far from where we are now: itís in Oldbury, just off Junction 2 of the M5.

While these changes are being made the only real difference to our customers will be the location to drop off and collect repairs. All preparations have already been made so it will not affect the time scale of current or future repairs. Contact details are also changing which you can find below. These details will be active from the 1st August 2015. However I will keep the current number and website active for a while until we have notified as many customers as possible.

Many of you already know me and I too have made many friends along the way. I wish to continue this relationship in the music trade and hopefully with all your support for many years to come. I have been repairing musical instruments now for many years and there is no job too big or too small that I canít repair.

I have worked very close with Chaz over the last 18 years and consider him and his family to be the closest of my friends. Itís sad that we will no longer be side by side on a day to day basis, however this is not the end for us. He is still on call (please donít tell his wife!) I owe Chaz for everything I know as a repairer and will keep the same high standard expected from my customers.

Address: 27 Moore Crescent, Oldbury, West Midlands, B68 9QP

Tel: 0121 544 7742
