Exam Fever

It’s February half-term! Time for most schools and colleges to relax and recharge for a week both students and teachers.  Justin Pavey at BrassWindFix is an experienced, reliable and specialist woodwind and brass instrument repairer.  Due to the high quality of his work the BrassWindFix workshop is often booked up some weeks in advance and we can’t always guarantee that there will be availability in the diary for an emergency repair/service – but half term is imminent and the calls from frantic parents who have children approaching exams will be calling to book instruments in for repair.

Exams are coming soon and you need your instrument to be in the best possible condition to help you perform at your best and get the results you want!  Here are a few ways to check your instrument is exam ready too!

Check your instrument over – are any valves or keys sticking? examinations
Do any of the pads need replacing?
Anything rattling on the instrument?
When was the last time you had it serviced
Is your instrument in need of repair?
Is the instrument in tip top condition?

If any of the above problems apply to your instrument then please don’t leave it to the last minute to get them fixed!

So check your instrument during the holidays, make sure it’s all working as it should.  If not, contact BrassWindFix and make an appointment to sort any problems out early – it will still give you time to practise on your new super-improved instrument so you too are super-primed, practised and ready for those all important examinations and grades.

BrassWindFix – Diary

2012-10-24 14.51.49BrassWindFix enjoyed a very busy lead up to Christmas with brass and woodwind instruments of all shapes and sizes coming through the workshop needing servicing, repair and also some serious dent work. The workshop is run by Justin Pavey, an expert woodwind and brass repairer – also an expert in dent-work!

The Christmas season was a busy old time and BrassWindFix are now looking through the diary for 2014.  With Easter on the horizon the BrassWindFix diary is already fully-booked until after the February half-term.

We know that on the lead up to Easter there will be some nervous, confident, apprehensive and enthusiastic musical students in the area that have examinations, rehearsals, performances and competitions starting soon afterwards.   There will be many hours spent practicising for those all-important nail-biting examinations.

Whilst you’re practising, please take a look at your woodwind or brass instrument.  Is it in the best possible condition it can be?  Are there any keys sticking? Do any pads need replacing? Have you dropped or damaged it? Have you been playing it whilst chewing gum and blown it into the neck of the instrument? (you’d be surprised how many sweeties we remove from instruments!) Would it need just a little expert TLC to make it feel like a brand new instrument again?

You need to ensure your instrument is in peak condition as it can enhance and improve your performance so everything works with you exactly as it should.  But please don’t leave it until the last minute!  Book your instrument in for servicing or repair with BrassWindFix now – you’ll need a little time to practice and adjust to your newly serviced/repaired instrument after its been in the BrassWindFix workshop! It will play like new afterwards!

BrassWindFix are fully-booked up until the February half-term holidays and, as we work a diary system, you’ll need to book your instrument into the diary as soon as possible.  We do have some emergency appointments available but these also get full quickly!

After an instrument service or repair at BrassWindFix we receive lots of calls and emails telling us how pleased the client is with the work.  We are often told that “it feels like a brand-new instrument” or “it’s never played so well” after BrassWindFix has worked on it and the majority of our work comes through recommendation.

So contact us now! Get it booked into the diary before all the available dates are gone!
