Professional Instrument Setup

PRO-SET is an exclusive system we use to prepare new musical instruments for sale. Our expert technicians put the instrument through a comprehensive testing, adjustment and modification process. This ensures that the instrument will be ready to play at its best, from the moment you first take it out of the case.

Every new instrument that goes through our PRO-SET process includes a checklist of tasks to be completed. Once the tasks are done, our technician signs the checklist so you can be confident in getting the best out of your new instrument.
