Jon Bentley

Former instructor at the Renton Technical School, Jon has taught countless musical instrument repair technicians that are now all over the country. When Jon speaks to you about your instrument, he talks of exacting specifications, numbers, and measurements. But while using these terms, he is able to help the player, whether a professional or a student and their family, understand in layman’s terms as well. In addition to teaching, Jon has been repairing both band and orchestral instruments for many years and is recognized as one of the best in the nation. John is a long time member of the several national associations including the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians, and is the only northern Nevada member of the VSA. Absolute Music is so proud to have him on our staff.

Steve Gibson

Our founder, Steve Gibson, has been a member of the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians for nearly 20 years. Steve apprenticed under famed technician Dave Huey of Acoustic Winds and Keyboards. Steve is a well rounded technician, working on both brass and woodwinds alike. Being a trumpet player, he is most fond of brass repair, but has been a sought after technician for woodwinds and string instruments as well. Steve and the other technicians here at Absolute Music regularly offer free emergency repair at the area’s music festivals and competitions.
