Some instruments may require initial setup. If you've just received your new instrument and need instruction to set it up yourself, continue reading. If you are looking for professional 'setup' services, please click here.  
 
This page contains information about setting up your new instrument if you are unfamiliar with its mechanics. In order to prevent stress on the instrument and provide you with the lowest shipping costs possible, we do not pre-assemble some instruments. If you require assistance, don't hesitate to contact a local professional in your area. Of course, if you're in the Austin area, come by our store and we'll be happy to help.
