Since then, Andrew has been finding any project horn or friend who needs a repair. The art of saxophone repair is a lifelong endeavor much like performing music.

"As a musician, there are few things more satisfying than getting your horn back after getting it repaired/aligned and it plays just like new. Thanks Andy Schlinder! Woodwind players, if you need a guy, seriously check out Andy to get your horns repaired or adjusted."
"In the 18 years I have been playing sax, I've switched repair guys so many times because they miss the small details like adjustments, felts/corks here and there! AP Sax nails it every time with all repairs and goes above and beyond to ensure my sax is how I like it. AP has overhauled/fixed my horns for the last 4+ years and every time it's a wow experience! Pricing is excellent, service is excellent, Andy is excellent, quite the recipe for 100% customer satisfaction if you ask me! 5-stars⭐!"
"Andy has worked his magic on my horns for several years. He’s passionate, knowledgeable beyond belief, and super talented."
"Andy goes above and beyond with my horns every time, I wouldn’t take them to anyone else!"
