Cost and Payment

Common costs

Most quick repairs such as a single cork or adjustment are $40 – $80. I see a number of instruments that need a handful of things and this tends to run $80 – $180. A complete clean/oil/adjust including complete disassembly for a professional model instrument will run $240 – $720. I can give you a free estimate for an exact amount when I see your instrument.

Estimates are free

If repairs above $80 might be out of your budget, let me know and I can provide you with a free written estimate. You are not obligated to have all repairs completed.

Payment methods

I can accept cash, check, Venmo, Paypal, Visa or Mastercard, and bank transfers. I can email you an electronic invoice that you can pay online. Payment is due in full when you pick up your instrument.
