Servicing and general maintenance is crucial to any brass instrument. Bearing in mind the mix of lubricant, water vapour and all the other toxins we blow through it every time we perform it's no surprise that valves and slides become sticky and sluggish, the tone deteriorates and the overall look is a sorry one! Brass Care offers a range of servicing to incorporate both the periodic general servicing along with the more major overhaul you might expect to be required less often. Below is a guide to our pricing structure. The prices you see do not take account for dent work or broken solder joints but do include some items that not all repairers undertake as standard. For instance, we will always re-lap/hand-finish valves on every visit as build-up of deposits in this area are commonplace and do not take long to cause sticking valve issues.
