Disassembly and cleaning – After complete disassembly, the body and keys are fully cleaned by degreasing. Silver and nickel Keys are buffed and polished.
Dentwork – Minor dents are restored.
Tone Hole and Pad cup – All tone holes and pad cups are checked and leveled to be flat for nice pad settle.
Keywork – All keys are tightened by expand or swedge keys to reduce the key moving and prevent the breaking away of pad settle from the tone hole, which makes air leaks.
New pads – all pads are replaced with Ferree’s pads and plastic or metal resonators. Each pad is adjusted to be an optimal seal from front to back and side to side. We can use other pads (white or black kangaroo) by customer request.
