I offer check-ups, minor repairs, services, full repads and overhauls for all woodwind instruments:
Check-up/Working Order – checking of pad seating and regulation, re-seating of pads and adjustments as necessary
Service – replacing of some pads, regulation and adjusting of mechanism, any other work as necessary
Repad – replacing of all pads, full regulation
It is advisable to let me know in advance when you want your instrument repairing. Please also let me know any specific work you want done on your instrument, either in advance or put a note with the instrument. If you are not sure what is wrong with it, I can advice you on whether it just needs minor work, or is in need of a full repad.
On receiving the instrument, I will inspect it and give you an estimate of the cost. Please check the price-guide to see how much you are likely to be charged. If you are sending me your instrument, you will need to cover postage costs.
Please contact me for prices of overhauls.
Please note these prices are only a guide and depend on the condition of the instrument and the work required. A more accurate estimate will be given on inspection of the instrument. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
If you would like an estimate before you send your instrument to me, please contact me.
