I never stop learning something new about the Pittsburgh economy. I had no idea we were a center of musical instrument repair. Looking at the latest data on occupational wage and employment stats from the BLS, here is a list of the local occupations with the highest reported location quotients. Some sure seem obvious, but #4 there is for "Musical Instrument Repairers," with a LQ of 4.0. Any LQ over 1.0 is something to think about.
