About Us

Appalachian Instruments has provided quality service for both professional and amateur musicians since 1981. We specialize in the supply and repair of stringed and Orff instruments, catering to Folk, Country, Bluegrass and other musical styles. Appalachian Instruments provides the only autoharp repair service available in Southern Ontario.

As a cottage industry, established by professional musician and teacher Robert Briehl, B.A., B.Ed., M.Sc., we are able to provide personal service and support. Along with individual musicians, our clients include schools, churches and other organisations.

Additional services we provide include:

  • mail order sales and service throughout Canada and the United States
  • youth and/or adult group instructional workshops
  • private lessons (upon request)
