I have my own workshop at home in Fleet, Hampshire for servicing and minor repairs on flutes, clarinets and saxophones. I can also carry out more complicated repairs with the professional workshop space I share with Kate Gurl.
Every instrument is different and as such it is very difficult to publish a price list; I will confirm a price with you before undertaking any work. If your instrument has been dropped, damaged or has simply stopped working I am happy to take a look and provide you with a no-obligation quote.
I have 3 levels of service:
Good Working Order/ Minor Service (recommended every 12 months)*
Check and adjust pad condition, seating and vent heights
Check and adjust key regulation
Replace corks and felts as necessary
*On flutes, check and adjust head cork
*On clarinets and saxophones, clean mouthpiece
Clean tenon joints
Full Service (recommended every 18-24 months)*
Fully strip down instrument
Clean and polish body, keys, key rods and pads
Check and re-tension springs
Replace up to 3 pads as necessary
Carry out “Good Working Order”
Full Re-Pad (as necessary)
As “Full Service” but with replacement of all pads
*Dependent on how regularly the instrument is played.
