Carere Music offers three of the top repair techs in the southeast: Neil Newcomb, Judith Klein and Ben Davis. They have many years of experience and are highly qualified to repair all woodwind and brass instruments. 

Estimates and consultations are always free!


Neil Newcomb

Neil has been in and near a repair shop for over 15 years studying, repairing or just practicing. As an established saxophonist and woodwind doubler, he has found himself in a unique situation to provide quality repairs and modifications to fellow musical colleagues. Neil has served MANY diverse musicians from members of the Atlanta Symphony, Military bases, middle and high school students, and even out-of-state touring acts (Trombone Shorty, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Doobie Brothers).


Judith Klein


Judith began studying flute repair as part of her Masters degree with Dr. Eldred Spell in 2008. Primarily a flutist and teacher herself, her original intention was to be able to work on her own instrument and her student's instruments. Demand for her skills grew though, and in 2014 she took over the flute repairs at Carere Music. Her meticulous work along with her experience and knowledge of what performers and students need have kept her workbench full ever since.

Ben Davis


Ben has been active on the Atlanta music scene for the past 25 years as a freelance woodwind performer and teacher. He has worked with independent artists The Black Lips, Prefuse 73, Washed Out and Curtis Harding among others and has appeared on over 50 albums. He currently is a member of Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics, West End Motel, Edgewood Saxophone Trio, The Purkinje Shift and Diamond Street Players. He has apprenticed woodwind and brass repair under Neil Newcomb for the past two years.
