Important Notice

Our state of Michigan has issued an Executive Order to Shelter-in-Place beginning Wednesday 3/24/20 at 12:01am. This applies to all "non-essential" businesses due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, including Elderly Instruments, and will last until April 13, 2020. Unfortunately, this will shut down "business as usual" for our Sales, Purchasing, Repair and Appraisal departments. While we can take orders on our website, it could take a few weeks (or more) until they are shipped out. We will be unable to answer the phone, but will do our best to attend to your email or online chat messages (from our own homes).

Please bear with us. We really appreciate your past, present and future business!

Our wish is for you to take care of yourselves, stay safe and healthy. We’re hopeful that we'll see you again soon. Thank you!
