Post-warranty service

We offer instrument and sound equipment repairs to all musicians, regardless of whether they purchased their instruments from us or not. These services are available to anyone upon agreement with Kytary.cu.uk personnel. Minor repairs and fine tuning are performed onsite (repair pricelist). If time permits, we perform simple repairs while you wait. More complicated repairs on instruments and electronic equipment are performed at our headquarters in Prague district, where we have a specialised workshop with expert repair staff. In exceptional cases when we are not able to resolve a problem, we will certainly advise you whom to turn to. If you would like more information on these services, contact our specialists:
