Woodwind Repair Service
CLEAN, OIL, AND ADJUST – COA
For our woodwind repairs, this is the option we recommend for annual cleanings.
The instrument is completely disassembled and thoroughly cleaned and serviced. We can spend all the time needed to completely clean up and polish the instrument inside and out and address all issues while the instrument is apart.
We also remove and replace key oil from all mechanisms, replace missing and worn key materials, and clean up pads and tone holes surfaces which help to prevent sticking pads.
An overhaul involves the complete disassembly and reconditioning of the instrument. All pads, regulation material kicker/foot materials, corks, etc are removed.
The instrument is completely cleaned, and lightly hand polished. The mechanism is refit to remove lateral/’side-to-side’ play, and hinge rods/steels are cleaned to remove any scratches or rust.
Key cups and tone holes are checked for level.
All new stabilizers, pads, shims, regulation material, kicker material, corks are correctly installed, and then the instrument is “played in” for a number of hours to “settle” the new materials.
