Cracks or Broken Tenons

Cracks in a wooden clarinet need attention as soon as that are noticed. If a crack is repaired early it will reduce leaks and major damage. Most cracks can be repaired by pinning the crack so it doesn't spread further and fill the area to hide the crack, prices start at $25.00 per pin.

Some damage may need a tenon or even the body graf. This is a very major repair that would only be estimated after inspection of the instrument.


The instrument will be disassembled cleaned and polished.  All the pads, key corks and felts will be replaced.  Wooden instruments will be oiled.  Refit the tenons, dents will be removed and keys will be refit to the body.  Spring will be replaced where necessary.  To finish the instrument will be play tested and polished.
