  1. Stuck mouthpieces usually come out instantly with a mouthpiece puller. If we can remove it immediately, there will be no charge. Over 95% of the stuck mouthpieces we service can be removed right away. If we have to work a little harder, there will be a nominal fee for our time and expertise.
  2. Estimated times are provided for your convenience and represent typical jobs. Custom work, special-order parts, and severely frozen slides may require additional shop time. Please contact us to learn more.
  3. Minor dent work is included with every clean/oil/adjust service. All other body work is estimated upon examination of the instrument.
