Our most popular service is listed below and we recommend instruments to have a proper service every one to two years to improve its performance and longevity. We are happy to do basic, one-off repairs as well.
This is a general overview of our in-house service procedure. Each repair shop completes a ‘service’ differently and there is no standardised procedure. For this reason, we invite you to view a more comprehensive overview of our brass service and let you be the judge for value for money.
