making music better
Costello's Music originated in Cleveland, Ohio in 1930, and has been operating ever since. Relocating from Fredonia, New York to Orange Park, Florida in 2005, we continue our history of excellent quality repairs and outstanding customer service.
Jim Costello has a degree in Musical Instrument Technology from the State University of New York in Morrisville. He also apprenticed under his father, Vincent Costello, who started the business in 1930 repairing instruments for all the big bands who traveled through Cleveland, including Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Stan Kenton, to name a few.
The pictures to the right are from the early days of the shop. We still use many of the same tools!
