Our new website is under construction, so we will be making less frequent updates to this one in the meantime. Look for our new website at the end of summer 2018!
Welcome to Bellingham Wind Works. We are a music store in Bellingham, WA excited to support the work of professional instrumentalists, music educators, and aspiring musicians of Whatcom and Skagit Counties with:

Our staff is a group of musicians, repair technicians, and music educators dedicated to providing a great musical experience for students, educators, and players at all levels. We regularly participate in the local music community. We return our profits to our community in the form of donations, sponsoring local youth jazz bands and orchestras, offering internships, and supporting our local symphony. We are members of Sustainable Connections, and their Buy Local campaign. We partner with other local small businesses whenever possible, and are working towards reducing waste and our environmental footprint. We are part of your community, and we want to make it the best place it can be.

Please feel free to contact us for any musical reason!


“Ed and crew are the best. They know their instruments, they know the community and they know the schools.  I got an oboe for my niece and when she decided to change instruments, the gang was right there to help transition her into the new instrument, including some helpful advice about what the teacher would want for supplies. Anyone who wants great service or just some repairs should be heading into Wind Works.   They are the best shop I have personally dealt with in many, many years.”

-Tracy A, Lynden, WA

“Wind Works is, hands down, the best repair shop I know.  Ed is extremely knowledgeable, kind and helpful.  He has cheerfully adapted his schedule to meet ferry times for people from the San Juan islands who request same-day service.  Ed is very up-front about what he can do.  Even better, he’s great at telling customers what they absolutely need to do to render their instruments functional, and what can wait until the next service.  I have recommended Ed to lots of friends, all of whom have been very happy with his work.  His prices are extremely reasonable.  I am delighted that he and Kat have expanded to rent and sell instruments, particularly those that are hard to find.  Ed has overhauled intermediate-level flutes for me and various friends, overhauled my alto flute, and does regular service on my high-end professional flute, as well as worked on my tenor sax.  Ed’s the best!”

-Moana K, Eastsound, WA

“Edward DeVaney is a most meticulous repair artisan for all woodwind instruments, including sarrusophones! Ed’s overhauls of oboes, oboes d’amore, and English horns rivals overhauls by any of the top oboe repair specialists in North America.  Wind Works is an amazing resource to have here in Washington State.”

-Peter H, Bellingham, WA

“You all have outdone yourselves again, the horn is just about perfect, plays like I always wished it would.”

-Thomas D, Bremen, Germany

“Thanks for your help with my piccolo. I appreciate your magic touch!”

-Roann, Bellingham, WA
