I heard from one of his employees he sold his business and is working from home now. He was pretty well known in the Seattle for a long time because he is an expert in repairing/making instruments. He had an awesome small team working for him and he was excellent and on time with repairing my saxophone. The only thing that bothered me...was one time when I had a couple stuff to sell...he didn't want to be bothered...He is always busy!!!

Don't fear! Northwest Winds is still open! But, Brad does not like to deal with the store front any longer. In the first years of going to Northwest Winds I would have problems getting my instrument back on time, but then I figured out to call in the day before I go to pick it up. I make sure that it will be done on time and it is! I've never had a problem with Brad! After years of going to him for repairs, and having bought multiple instruments from the store, he's begun to give great deals on everything I need!

The sign on the outside says that the store is closed. My daughter's flute teacher has heard that the store is closed permanently. She says that the rumor has it that Brad is in jail. Does anyone know???
He's such a nice guy but such an inept businessman. I could well imagine that he got into problems with inadvertant tax fraud or something. This is just rumor - does anyone know?????

Never a bad experience. Friendly and professional.

After an accident with my new horn left it unplayably dented, I called on a Sunday to check the store hours for the next week. I had a gig on the next Saturday, and needed it or a replacement ASAP. They actually answered the phone (though they were closed) and told me to bring it in.
Though I thought it was an extensive (and expensive) repair, I got it back mid-week, and spent a third of what I expected.

I know folks that travel a hundred miles or more for NWW. Thankfully I don't have to.

Brad, the owner of this company, is a fine repairman. His workmanship is wonderful but he is totally disorganized. He cannot stay on schedule no matter how hard he tries. When I bring my daughter's instrument in to be repaired he will promise to have it done on a certain day but when I show up to pick it up, Brad tells me that he is just ready to start it THEN. If I leave the business, he does not continue working on the instrument - if I stay, he does continue to work on it.
Annoying to say the least!
