Repair Pricing 

All instruments left for repair must be in a hard case!

Pricing updated May 2021

The below prices are based on instruments in good playing condition with normal wear and tear. Additional costs for repairs may be needed in order to complete the repair.  Since there is no way for us to estimate an instrument over the phone, we do not quote repair jobs without being able to see them.



Full Service: Instruments will be disassembled, ultrasonically cleaned and flushed. Mouthpiece will be cleaned. Case will be cleaned inside and out. Instrument will be fitted with all new corks and felts, play tested and adjusted for proper play condition. Dent work extra. Hand polishing of silver-plated instruments extra. Trombone slide work extra. 

Ultrasonic Cleaning: is a method of cleaning that uses a mild water-based detergent to vibrate calcium/particulate build-up from the interior of an instrument.  The horn is immersed in the running machine for 2-4 minutes, then thoroughly rinsed clean and dried.  Annual cleanings are recommended to keep your brass in good lasting condition.
