BRASS & WOODWIND REPAIRS
Vivace Music offers general serving and repair on all Brass & Woodwind instruments
As instruments age, more work is required to keep them in top playing condition. A regular annual servicing is recommended to keep your instrument working properly. Instrument keys can go slightly out of alignment and key pads can become worn from time to time with use.
Other than the regular instrument servicing, instruments can have accidents and they need to be repaired. Please take your instrument to one of Vivace Music stores, a repair quotation will be provided to you within a few days after a proper inspection is done by our experienced technician.
Tips to Avoid Instrument Damages
To keep your brass and woodwind instruments in working order, firstly, do not leave your instrument assembled unless you have placed it on an appropriate instrument stand as it can fall over or to the ground and sustained damage. Secondly, you need to know how to correctly assemble and disassemble your instrument. Incorrect assembly of brass and woodwind instruments can cause stacked joints, bent keys, and cork damage. You always turn-in and turn-out when you assemble and disassemble your instrument, not to push in or pull out. Sometimes you may find there are notes cannot be played with sound, because there is one or more bent keys causing air leakage or your instrument keys may have broken springs. Regular application and use of cork grease, valve oil, tuning slide grease, slide cream or rotor oil are all necessary as part of instrument maintenance.
Expected Working Time
When you send your instrument to us for repair or servicing, a working time of 10 days to 2 weeks can be expected. During busy times, such as school holiday periods, please allow a little longer. We will always endeavour to work with you to ensure your instrument is ready for you when you need it.
