Professional Saxophone Repair & Overhaul Services

Saxophones are complex mechanical devices. It relies on the ability of materials such as leather, cork & felt to properly seal toneholes and articulate key mechanisms. Unfortunately, these materials all compress and un-compress as time goes on. Sadly, many saxophones do not have even & stable surfaces for these materials to compress to, which results in uneven compression of the pads, corks & felts. Combine that with the fact that many technicians do not have the proper training to correct these issues and you quickly can realize the potential disaster in store for many saxophones!
