Hi! My name is Steve and I have been repairing woodwind instruments for over 15 years. I was taught to repair by David Fingerhut who is rated as one of the best repairers in the country. During my 15 years, I have dealt with both professional and students and have worked on a variety of instruments – most of my time is now taken up with Clarinets, Saxophones and Flutes.
I have been based in Boroughbridge for 5 years – previous to this, I was in Hertfordshire for 10 years
I invite you to put your instrument into my care for a free check-over. I only complete necessary work. It is advised that instruments should be checked over/serviced every 2 years to ensure they remain in top working order. I use top quality materials; my pads are made specially to order in Italy and France. Whatever your instrument needs are (and whatever your budget needs), I can cater for them!
Whether you need a spring replacing, a tenon cork changing, or a whole saxophone repadded – I’m your man!
Servicing on Clarinets and Flutes – £75
Servicing on Saxophones – £140
Please be aware that this is an ‘all-in’ price; there are no hidden extras or VAT. I also do work that other repairers charge extra for – levelling tone holes and re-corking tenon joints etc. Smaller work carried out from £10.
All work is normally completed within a week, often sooner. Small jobs can be completed ‘while-you-wait’ if previously booked in.
I am a professional member of NAMIR – National Association of Musical Instrument Repairers (Membership Number: 07354P). My workshop also has full public liability insurance and contents cover so you and your instruments will be safe at all times.
So why not give me a ring to book your instrument in for its service? Holidays are a great time to book instruments in as I am usually quieter, especially during the Summer holidays.
