Gary Armstrong started the business thirty-five years ago and remains the chief repair technician. Gary started playing the oboe in his teens, and after years of study came to the cross roads that young players face. Choosing to forgo the usual stresses that constant auditions and performances can bring, Gary took the road less traveled and began to repair instruments. Over his long career Gary has, through the constant desire for perfection, improved upon and even pioneered many of the world class repair techniques we employ at our shop. With his performance background, years of experience and desire for perfection, Gary is uniquely qualified to understand the demands of the professional woodwind player. With Gary continuing to set the example on professionalism and quality of work, Gary Armstrong Woodwinds is the premier Woodwind specialist in Canada.
