"I recently had my tuba cleaned by Mike Nye, using the Ultrasonic Cleaner. It is the most thorough cleaning I've ever had! My tuba plays like new after being cleaned in such a microscopic way. Each time I have it cleaned this way, it blows more freely and has better intonation. I love it. Traveling with the Dallas Brass, I perform hundreds of concerts per year and need an efficient way of cleaning the instrument. Mike always does great work and is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this method of cleaning for your instrument!"

"Mike Nye's work is wonderful! I just received my tuba back from an ultrasonic cleaning and a complete valve alignment. My tuba plays better than it did new! WOW! Everything about the instrument's response is better thanks to Mike's expertise! Thank you, Mike!"
