Randy Graves, band instrument repair technician, and Peter Heithoff, a luthier who repairs stringed instruments, have owned and operated Bend Instrument Repair Inc. since 2001. Both are formally trained musicians, but today they focus their talent on keeping Central Oregonians playing in tune. The pair specialize in repairing band and stringed instruments, as well as taking in percussion and electronic amplification systems that they contract out for repair. It is the only dedicated musical instrument repair shop with a public storefront in Central Oregon.
