I recently took a new trumpet that I accidently dinged into the Horn Connection. Excellent job taking out the ding. If I didn't know it was there originally I couldn't tell there ...


All reviews seem positive

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/27/2012

I used to live in the neighborhood and would take all my horns to Manny. He's a great guy. I once had a gig on a Saturday and a pad had fallen out of my Mark VI. He just pulled one off the wall and let me use it while he worked on mine. I'll never forget that. Any other BS about his attitude and all, is just that. He loves the players and he loves the horns. He just wants to place you with the best horn for your needs. I've never gotten a bad vibe at all. more

Manny does great work. 3/6/2010

I recently took a new trumpet that I accidently dinged into the Horn Connection. Excellent job taking out the ding. If I didn't know it was there originally I couldn't tell there ever was one there. And the job it was priced great. Manny and Alex are really nice people to deal with. Pros: Good prices on his work. more

Horn Connection is L.A.'s finest sax repair shop. 5/12/2009

This is a great place for all your sax needs. Repairs are outstanding and reasonably priced, considering it's just Manny doing the repairs. He is a good guy and definitely knows his work. I think his hours are 4-6PM during the week and he works Saturdays too. He saved my horns a few times. The selection of vintage horns is pretty amazing and they have mouthpieces and ligs as well. Alexei is a knowledgeable sales guy, a good tenor player, and has tons of experience with the gear. This IS the place to go if you are in Los Angeles area. Pros: Cheap reeds, huge selection and pro sales Cons: Watch where you park, pay the meters. Don't park on Sunset more

I'm not really objective, but... 5/6/2009

I do work at The Horn Connection, so my positives are slanted and I'm not going to list negatives. Here is an example of amazing repair work that Manny does: a customer brought a very expecive flute, chewed on by a dog. I was sure there was nothing that could be done. In a few days the fute played and looked like new. And plus the cheapest reeds in town. Pros: The largest collection of Mark 6 Saxes more

Competent work, but horrible customer service 2/3/2007

Manny is a competent, sharp guy who does very good work. But he really needs to work on his attitude. The guy talks down to me every time I go in there, telling me my horn's a piece of ****, etc. I'm not making this up. I don't have the money to buy a new horn, and I just play for fun anyway, so being reprimanded repeatedly over it is not really a lot of fun. I've since taken my business elsewhere. Pros: the actual work Cons: you might get yelled at more

Top Notch 10/22/2002

There are 2 types of music stores, those owned by someone who plays and who knows their stuff, and ones owned by somebody just out to make a buck. The Horn Connection is one of those places where they definitely know their stuff. Manny and his staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. I would recommend this store to any of my friends who play. Park on Gardner rather than Sunset. Pros: Very Helpful, Knowledgeable more
