We do both! Complete restorations or selective repairs on antique pneumatic players and their parts. (Orchestrions and Band Organs are limited in height to standard ceilings, however.)

Most of our customers are out of state, and prefer to ship their instruments to us. We receive and ship instruments around the world.

Our pricing, reputation, and guarantee has always assured our customer friends that not only will they get what they paid for, but more than they expected.

We have enjoyed benefitting people this way in the wonderful field of automatic music, and have made many lifelong friends because of it! I think because people who love these instruments are by nature really fine people, in general.

We would like to get to know you, too, and want you to know us. You should have complete confidence in anyone before you ship a valuable instrument. That is why we post this guarantee on our home page:

"I have always guaranteed our workmanship to be the highest caliber available. Others do this as well, but I also guarantee the performance of both the instrument or the parts we have restored for a period of 1 year from the date we finished. That means, we take full responsibility for problems in that instrument caused or overlooked by our rebuilding. It may be an antique musical instrument, but it should never have problems due to old age when you have it restored. From that point on, it should play like it did when it was new, or better than new. This is possible because we detail your instrument note by note, unlike most factories that produced them."

Since "Player-Care" is an internet business, I prefer that we correspond via E-Mail (click here to fill out the 'Request Form'). However, if I'm not in the middle of some other activity, you can reach me at 732-840-8787. But please understand that during the hours from 8AM-5PM EST (Mon-Sat), I'm generally quite busy. So, I probably won't answer the phone. If you get the answering machine, please leave a detailed message stating the reason for your call. Also, repeat your name and phone number clearly and distinctly. By necessity, I prioritize everything in my life. And, if you call and just leave your name and number, and ask me to call you back, it might be a day or two before I return your call. Why? Because I don't know why you want me to call and I might not be prepared to assist you in an effective and efficient manner. If you leave me an E-Mail address (which I prefer), spell it out phonetically. The more you do to help me, the more I can help you in return. Don't rush. You have four minutes to record your message.
