Custom Machined Parts for Musical Instruments

Avanti Engineering is your source for precision machined parts for musical instruments.  Avanti has been in business since 1972 and today their skilled machinists use state of the art technology to produce custom machined parts such as musical instruments.  From design engineering to post production of parts for musical instruments, Avanti engineers can provide quality service and value-added consulting.   

Musical instruments are made from brass.  Brass is easy to machine but still produces parts with tight tolerances which is important in the production of components for musical instruments.  Machined parts for musical instruments are often made of brass due to the durability and corrosion resistance of the metal.
