MusicMedic, the online resource for Woodwind repair tools and supplies, is excited to announce an exclusive UK distribution deal with Dawkes Music.
MusicMedic’s best-selling USA made woodwind repair tools & supplies as well as MusicMedic’s famous instrument pads are now available online through Dawkes Music. Dawkes Music will now carry everything a working instrument repair technician needs. They have chosen to stock a wide range of tools and materials to make it easier for customers in the UK and beyond to access.
Abi Taylor, Dawkes Music UK Repair Shop Manager, says, “The technicians here at Dawkes Music have been long standing admirers of MusicMedic and their products, regularly enjoying their fantastic ‘bench notes’ repair newsletter and swooning over the clever, practical tools they manufacture. We were lucky enough to meet Curt Altarac in person when Dawkes hosted the National Association of Instrument Repairers annual general meeting in winter 2018, his talk was inspiring and we were able to express our enthusiasm for his business and work ethic. As existing suppliers of repair tools and materials to the UK and Europe, the conversation regarding distribution of MusicMedic products came naturally as our shared interests and goals as companies were so clearly aligned. We are so thrilled to be able to use, supply and shout about these products as we believe the technicians we support will benefit from an enhanced and elevated repair experience.”
Richard Zimmerman, MusicMedic’s Sales Director, says, “We are extremely excited to be collaborating with our friends at Dawkes Music. When we first visited in 2018 for a NAMIR clinic we were so impressed with the quality and professionalism of everyone there. Over the last several months I have had the privilege to experience the professionalism and attention to detail that Jon, David, Abi, Sam and everyone else on the Dawkes team is known for. We are looking forward to working to develop new tools for the UK technicians and give access to our line of woodwind pads made here in Wilmington, NC. Cheers!”
