Each key and lever is individually tightened by a special swadging process. All body dents and blemishes are repaired as close to original condition without jeopardizing your instrument structurally or acoustically. Only the finest quality materials and parts are used throughout the overhaul process; we meet or exceed the original factory specifications. New pads, springs, cork and felt silencers, are installed after the body and key mechanism have been processed through the dent-removal, buffing, and baked-on epoxy finishing stages. All tenon and neck corks are replaced at no extra charge. Your instrument is then precision-assembled, regulated, and thoroughly tested by a qualified musician. The replacement of major parts, plating of the key mechanism or body, and the removal of extensive blemishes or body damage will be charged extra at prevailing rates. All prices given below are approximations and are for instruments in average condition. If your instrument requires additional repair, please bring, or ship your instrument to our shop for a more accurate evaluation and estimate.

CRACK REPAIR PRICES:
If the wood body of your woodwind is fractured, you will have the choice of either pinning the crack or have it remedied via the flush banding method. Properly done, either technique will stabilize the fractured section. Many repair technicians will have a strong opinion for one or the other methods of repair, however, we are able to perform both techniques to your satisfaction. The cost of repair for this type of damage is determined by estimate only.
Pinning Method: To secure a fracture, we install a number of threaded rods through the body and running generally perpendicular to the crack. Usually, a minimum of two pins, with as many as six or more may be necessary. The result will be all but invisible, in that both ends of each pin terminate beneath the surface of the instrument.
Flush Banding Method: This process consists of shrinking a seamless nickel band around the fractured section. Solid silver bands are used on Oboes and English Horns. The band stabilizes the fracture evenly and prevents it from spreading. Flush bands are flush with the outside surface of the body and do not interfere with the key mechanism. One band is often sufficient for smaller fractures, but for extended cracks more than one band is usually required.
