INSTRUMENT REPAIR & SERVICING

All your instrument needs under one roof

BRASS & WOODWIND REPAIRS

We repair onsite Brass and Woodwind instruments, including dent removal, servicing and overhauls.

At Oggies Music we also specialise in using ultrasonic cleaning technology as part of our repair and servicing process. This process is environmentally friendly compared to the standard use of acids and chemicals.

For more information go to our ultrasonic cleaning page where the technique and cleaning process is described.

All our prices are benchmarked and adjusted on a regular basis. If you have your instrument serviced regularly please ask for a pre-booked future service at a discounted rate

BRASS REPAIR & SERVICING PRICE GUIDE

All brass service prices are an estimated starting price, some generic spares may be provided free of charge.

A service includes a pre-wash and rinse, ultrasonic clean and final wash, rinse and drying, disassembling, lubrication and reassembling. All slides will need to be functional, unless easily removed; their removal is in addition to the service charge at the appropriate hourly rate.

 Please note the cleaning process will include a light polish of inners tuning slides, for silver plated instruments there is an additional charge of 10% for a light polish to the finish.

general terms

For all the services offered please be prepared to leave the instrument for at least seven days. Where special parts are required this service period may be extended.

The minimum workshop charge is £8 and the hourly rate is £32. Where the hourly charge is more cost effective it will be applied instead of the standard charges. i.e when an instrument is checked for playing order and the work takes less then two hours.

All prices quoted assume that the instrument has been recently in use and that it has been regularly looked after by a professional repairer. Some older models, non standard designs and instruments that are damaged will incur additional charges. The prices shown should be considered as a guideline and then adapted to take into account the additional works.
