We are a full service, complete musical instrument repair center located in Cleveland, Ohio. We have been operating at the same location for 30 years. We pride ourselves as one of the most complete repair shops in the country, and regularly provide excellent service to professionals, retailers, and manufacturers worldwide.
Borodi Refinishing is unique, our technicians are the best in the industry. Some have decades of factory employment under their belt, and we have a combined 150 years of experience. We have an extensive vintage instrument parts inventory, many original factory parts still in packaging, just waiting for a special instrument.
We have precise factory equipment to rebuild and restore any make and model, including metal fabrication lathe and milling machines, professional DeVilbis spray both, and a Sunnen honing machine, the only way to precisely fit and repair valves and valve casings to factory specs. See Repairs
We use the highest quality factory baked on epoxy lacquer by Nikolas on all of our refinished instruments and have a one-of-a-kind inventory of vintage restored and refinished instruments.

Borodi Refinishing was owned and operated by George & Ninel Borodi from the 1970’s until 2017. George is a European Master Craftsman and has been restoring and repairing instruments since 1962. In 2017 George was looking to retire and Everett Beeman, owner and operator of Beeman Brass Works, was offered the business. Everett and his wife Elisa purchased Borodi Refinishing in the spring of 2017 and are operating at the same location. With the addition of the specialized precision equipment and expert factory trained technicians from Borodi Refinishing, Everett was able to expand his one man shop into a world class facility, specializing in expert one of a kind service.
