Dent removal, soldering, crack repairs. We have the equipment and skills to do all kinds of body work. Our objective is to make the result look at attractive as possible.
We work on all kinds of saxophone and clarinet mouthpieces. Services include refacing, tip opening changes, chamber modifications, and repairs to damaged mouthpieces.
Pictures of another cracked shank repair. Here’s an old Dukoff “Fluted Chamber” hard rubber mouthpiece.
