General Maintenance
Clarinets should be maintained by a repair technician every one to two years.  A general maintenance it is a great option to fully disassemble, clean rods and hinge tubes, replace necessary key silencers and up to 4 pads, check the seal of pads, fit tenons and regulate the horn.  Our clarinet specialists do a great job play testing to ensure you get a fine-tuned instrument. Key polishing is an added labor cost.

Crack Repairs
Clarinets do crack on occasion.  When this occurs, don’t despair!  Make sure to stop playing as soon as you notice a crack, and call us to see how we can best schedule a repair. Crack repairs can take 3-6 days to ensure crack area stabilization.  We will make sure to inform you of the necessary repairs and keep you updated as we bring your horn back into a solid playing condition.  Please do not modify a crack before sending it to us.  It will void any warranty we can offer on our crack repairs.
