Joe has always enjoyed a large professional clientele by continuously striving for excellence in his repair work. His patience and willingness to please even the most demanding players remain as important as his expertise. Younger players too, often leave sounding and playing better by following his advice and tips on posture, sound projection and articulation.
The finest woodwind players from all circles of the music business would converge on Joe's famed Carnegie Hall location, keeping him busy many late nights at the repair bench. To accommodate his clients' recording, performance and travel schedules, as well as the ever-present "emergency" repairs, 20 hour workdays were not uncommon.
After reluctantly closing his Carnegie location, Joe remained full time at his Dumont, New Jersey shop. Many of his favorite clients would continue to visit Joe for repairs, although others found it difficult to add the extra travel time to their busy schedules. Reducing his repair commitments, however, allowed Joe to direct more time and energy to the sales of used instruments, always an important segment of his business.
In recent years, Joe has further reduced his shop hours, conducting a major portion of the business by phone, fax, and most recently the internet. Now maintaining locations in Walton, New York and Dumont, New Jersey, Joe accepts appointments for "in person" sales and repair visits.
