We  specialize in all repairs to Brass and woodwinds. Woodwinds needing adjustments to full repads are what keep us the busiest. Neck corks on saxes and tenon corks on clarinets, are also available. We also do polishing to keys, and silver soldering to rebuild a broken key. Tenon rebuilds to clarinets, oboes and bassoons are also our specialty.

All brass repairs from minor dent removal to replacing leadpipes, freeing stuck slides and valve refitting are all done in our shop. We also do full dedenting of all brass instruments from trumpets to tubas.

Ultrasonic cleaning and acid baths are a constant at Music Aid. We have an Ultrasonic cleaning big enough to clean a tuba.
