Instrument Servicing & Repair

We offer three servicing options for Clarinets, FlutesSaxophones; Individual Repair(s), Light Service and a Full Service/Overhaul. All of our service options are designed to bring used instruments back to factory fresh condition, ensuring they sound their best and are a joy to play.

Individual Repair

If you have a fairly new or recently serviced instrument, typically with one or two problematic issues that affect the way the instrument plays, we are happy to assist with the issues on an individual basis. We will bring the instrument back into appropriate playing order by fixing the issues, without performing a full strip down/overhaul.

Light Service

Our Light Service is for instruments of moderate age which are played regularly, have had considerable use and are showing signs of wear & tear. We will bring a tired or worn instrument back to top playing condition.

During the Light Service, our instrument technicians carry out a range of tasks which vary from instrument to instrument. For more details on the specific tasks that take place, please visit our individual pages for; Clarinet Repair, Flute Repair & Saxophone Repair.

Full Service

We recommend our Full Instrument Repair Service for older, high-quality instruments which have either not been played for a long time, or have been stored in conditions that have caused degradation or affected playability.

A full service requires a number of tasks to be performed, this varies depending on the instrument. For more details on what takes place, please review our pages for; Clarinet Repair, Flute Repair & Saxophone Repair.
