1. ‘FULL PLAYING ORDER  – find and fix general playing faults’ 

 

Fault finding and correction to make the instrument play properly. 

Instruments booked in for  ‘full playing order’ will first of all be checked for leaks using our incredibly accurate Magnohelic pressure testing machine.  This will provide us with information about the condition of the pads, joints and keywork.  

 ‘Full playing order’  includes straightening bent keywork; replacing touch corks, felts and up to 3 pads (additional pads required are chargeable); regulation (balancing of the mechanism).   We allow a certain amount of workshop time in the standard price which is enough to have most instruments returned to ‘full playing order’ as the name of this workshop job suggests.

If an instrument needs more work than the basic price we will advise you before proceeding.
