Brass Care can bring new life to your worn, broken or tired brass instrument. Often a complete instrument refurbishment can be a more cost-effective solution when considering the price of replacement. We can carry out brass instrument repairs and cleaning along with a new coat of silver or 24ct gold plating which will restore your beloved horn back to how it used to look and play.
