Good maintanance will lengthen the life of your brass instrument. Most instrument owners do basic maintanance, but sometimes a bit more is needed. A good chemical clean that gets rid of corrosion and calcium deposits is an example of maintanance that
must ideally be done by a professional. Just like a good digital valve alligment using fresh cork/felt rubbers, etc.
We offer chemcleans that will make your instrument like new again on the inside using an environmental friendly product that won’t harm silver, gold or lacquer finish. Because we often work on period/original instruments for restorations and modifications
we are used to be very careful not harming the finish and base materials when using any kind of chemicals. That is the same for altrasonic treatment. We only use our ultrasonic cleaner there where it is safe. Old instruments that have become brittle
over time, instruments with any form of red rot, and instruments with weak lacquer are cleaned without the use of ultrasonic equipment. After any form of chemckeaning lacquer will be rehydrated.
We offer three different maintanance packages
1) basic: chemclean/ultrasonic where possible.
2) more: chemclean + digital valve allignment with fresh felt/cork.
3) complete: chemclean, valve allignment and replacing valve guides / waterkey springs + a complete outside polish of the instrument.
