All pads and key corks are replaced. Springs are replaced if needed. The job price includes either the Aluminum “sil-va-wave” resonators or the plastic Selmer style resonators. The instrument is then reassembled. Each pad is first individually fit and then the combinations are adjusted. The action is regulated to factory specifications with attention to proper key height and a balanced spring tension throughout the instrument. The instrument is play tested for intonation and ease of play. On saxophones, the job includes a new neck cork. On flutes, a new tuning cork. On clarinets, cork joints are extra (see misc. services).
