Dear Dan,
Peter OlstadPeter Olstad
I wanted to thank you again for doing such great work
on my Hub Van Laar. I can't believe how well it plays now.
You made it come to life.

Take care and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

Peter Olstad

Hey Dan: First, thanks for taking so much time with me today. AND...WOW! I just finished a good 2 hours of playing and what you have done is amazing. The interval connection is so much more burp as overtone series change.....pitch is wife simply sounds so much more focused. So this was a big step. Overtone series seems to speak more quickly with less energy expended. Mpce seems to have become friends with the insert... I might want to fool with that down the road, but for now just wanted to say thanks.

Hi Dan,

Now that I've had my horn back for a few weeks and have had a chance to really try it out, I wanted to tell you how much I am enjoying the work you did on my valves. The horn seems to notch into the notes so well now, much like it did when the horn was new...very comfortable. I love it!

Thank you!"Dr. D" and Sue McCullough"Dr. D" and Sue McCullough

Hi Dan,

Thank you for the great work you and your staff did on my C trumpet. Not only was my custom tuning slide beautifully done, but the cleaning job was outstanding. I don't think my valves looked this good when they came out of the Bach factory thirty years ago!

Best to you!

"The Treatment"

CIOMIT uses state of the art Ultrasonic Cleaning (UC) on all instruments. Even though Ultrasonics have been heralded as the "end all to cleaning" it takes additional steps to make sure your instrument bore is totally clean. Build up of calcium and other deposits can impede air flow and affect intonation and resistance. Our process of UC and mechanical cleaning produces a smooth, obstruction free bore without the use of highly toxic chemicals.

We do not use the "Texas Flush" method as we have found the abrasiveness of that process removes brass. Our process does not affect your manufactures bore specifications!

Hi Dan,
Thank you so much for everything you did for me! My tuba is perfect. The repair job you did is beautiful! You can’t even tell the horn was cut. I will definitely use you in the future for all of my instrument repair needs and recommend you to all of my friends!

What do top guitarists think ?

"I think it's one of the greatest innovations in guitar technology" - Steve Vai
"Having played guitar for nearly forty years, I've learned to expect intonation problems. But now, for the first time, the problems are gone. I'm in tune." - Robben Ford
"I've been playing guitar since I was six years old, and it's finally in tune." - Larry Carlton
New Guitars with the Buzz Feiten Tuning System
A growing family of quality manufacturers and builders have implemented the Feiten System on new electric and acoustic guitars, basses and more - with a wide range of models and prices. Ranging from leading manufacturers like Washburn and Garrison, to renowned custom lines like Tom Anderson, as well as custom luthiers like Suhr, Baker, McPherson and Galloup. You can even get the system on basses from MTD, tap instruments from Warr and Mobius, and Red Diamond Mandolins.

"Listening to the Anderson 25.5"-scale and 24.75"-scale guitars convinced us of the Buzz Feiten System's abilities. We know Anderson builds great-sounding guitars, but these were unreal. Gone were the sharp low-register notes. Close- interval chords sounded much more in tune than they did on any of our guitars, and the bloom of sustained chords was beyond anything we've heard." - Bench Tests: "The Buzz Feiten Tuning System" Guitar Player Magazine
"Before the Buzz Feiten Tuning System, I lived in the dark age of tuning where every session and every gig was a potential tuning nightmare. You never knew what would happen. After the Buzz Feiten Tuning System, I was completely free. Who could ask for anything more!" - John March - LA Guitarist"
I was amazed when I saw Buzz at the NAMM Show playing four-fingered chords all the way up the neck and every note was in tune." - Robert Ninow - Robert Ninow Guitar Services and Authorized Retrofitter
'To me, pushing and pulling strings and even re-tuning has been an inconvenient fact of life. Buzz Feiten does exactly what guys like me any chord, at any position rings clear and true...better playing and more of it. The PERFECT solution for any guitar.' Michael S. Conklin - Guitar Player
'Without proper intonation there is no music. Now that I have BFTS on my guitars my music has never sounded better. I love the full rich sound of a guitar in tune, not only with itself, but with everyone else in the band... BEST THING I've EVER DONE!'. Roy Garcia - Jazz Guitarist and Instructor
'Long overdue and overlooked, this system has finally made the guitar in tune from top to bottom. Radical bends and steel licks above the 12th fret have never sounded sweeter. I no longer have to fight pitch!' - Pete Anderson - Producer and Session Guitarist
'What sold me on the Feiten System was hearing fretted notes played against open strings way past the twelfth fret - and still perfectly in tune!' - JC Daugherty - Guitar Repair Professional
