A thank you!

Another couple of satisfied customers in the BrassWindFix workshop!thank you

“Thanks so much for the wonderful service that you’ve just done on my tenor. It has never sounded so good. And I can get the low notes so easily. You are brilliant!

Many thanks, Annie”

 

“I thought I would drop you note to thank you for the superb work you did in repairing my trumpet, what you have done is truly incredible. All the dents of time have gone, not just the ones that occurred when I dropped it, the slides have never worked so well and the general service you did in replacing pads, corks and springs is amazing.

I did a gig on Saturday and it was like playing a new instrument, no clattering valves and rough slides – brilliant.

I certainly won’t hesitate to recommend your services. Many thanks Ducan.”

 

“Thanks again for repairing my tenor sax in time for my band practice this evening.  I have tried it out and it is better than before the accident. Regards Rob”

Dent Removal

“I only put it on the floor for a second”

Minor dents and dings happen and are inevitable with brass instruments.  A few minor dents won’t seriously affect or change the overall sound Phone pics 150509 292or playability of your brass instrument,Phone pics 150509 296 however, if there are too many, or if the dent protrudes inwards more than 1/3 the diameter then this could cause a change in pitch, stability, tone and general playability.  Ideally there should not be any dents in brass instruments at all but that would be extremely unrealistic for both students and professional brass players.

If there are any dents in the mouthpiece shank, leadpipe or initial bore then these dents will affect the brass instrument considerably and will need to be repaired by a dent removal expert  to get the best out of your instrument and improve your personal performance. With trombone handslides both the inner and outer slides are easily bent so if you feel any dents at all whilst playing then this will need repairing to improve the performance of your brass instrument.

Many people try to remove dents and dings themselves but, if you don’t really know what  you are doing, dent removal yourself can cause further damage to the brass instrument and will require even more expert repair work and be more expensive.  Most dent repair work can be done easily and inexpensively – if caught early.
