Brass and Woodwind Repairs

When you leave your instrument in our shop, you will receive a receipt for it.  Then, as soon as possible, Henry Riedstra will give you a written estimate of the cost of repairing your instrument. There may be a $50 fee (50% refundable if you get your instrument repaired here) for the repair estimate since it can take an hour or more to check over and report on a woodwind or even a brass instrument needing a lot of attention.

Henry or Linda Riedstra will get back to you within a day or two and will discuss with you the cost of all the major and minor repairs, and/or restoration of your woodwind or brass instrument. Putting your instrument into Play Condition for example, will be a lower price than giving the instrument a total Overhaul.
Examples of some of the repairs we have done and will do for you:

Some instruments Henry Riedstra has repaired/restored include:
Alto Saxes: Mark VI Selmer from the 1060's, Abbott Professional, Conn (1920's),   several other Selmer saxophones
Tenor Sax: Selmer
Flutes: Bundy, Armstrong, Artley, Gemeinhardt
Clarinets: several Bundy clarinets, a Selmer clarinet, a Vito bass clarinet
Oboes: Linton composite Oboe, Conn, Cabart Oboe, Selmer oboe
English Horn: Howarth grenadilla wood
Bassoon:  fox bassoon model IV, an old unbranded Bassoon
Trumpet or Cornet: Joseph Higham Cornet from the 1870's, Bach Trumpet,
Getzen model 300 trumpet, a Yamaha trumpet, an old Army Bugle
Trombone: a Conn Director trombone, Conn 6H, Conn 50H Trombone, Conn B
flat/F trombone, Conn Bass trombone
French Horn:  an Ambassador double French horn, a Yamaha double French
horn, a Huttl German single F Horn
Tuba: a Besson 2-20 tuba
We have also setup several new brass and woodwind instruments for
customers and others which we are stocking in the store for sale.

On woodwinds (including sax), we supply missing parts, install new pads (repadding), replace head cork, new felt, new key corks, new springs, pivot screws, guard screws, and new posts.  We also re-level pads and regulate them, round out and adjust joints and tenons for proper fit, improve the action, remove dents, unsolder, or solder and re-solder loose parts, align and reposition and reshape and straighten bent keys and rods, levers and springs, and eliminate buzzes and noises.  Furthermore, we do regulation of keys, level the tone holes, and replace thumbrest screws, dissassemble and reassemble, disinfect, clean, lube and test play all instruments.  We can do some relacquering and we will quote on replating if needed or wanted.  In essence, we can provide you with a thorough overhaul.

On brass instruments, we remove dents, and lube stuck slides, and valves, align trombone slides and other slides, brush polish valves and casings, replace screws, supply new lead pipes, replace missing parts, level bell rims, roll out creases, and eliminate buzzes and noises.  On French horns, we also fix and unseize binding or stuck rotors, fix braces, and restring as well.   Not only that, but we also replace felts and cork, water key springs; unassemble, re-assemble, untwist, unsolder, or solder, and re-solder braces and loose parts, and straighten mouthpiece shanks.  We also do complete valve jobs, clean, brush and polish,  and test play all instruments.  We can do some relacquering and we will quote on replating if needed or wanted.  Essentially, we can provide you with a thorough overhaul.

On cases, we can fix or replace case latches, and parts, glue loose linings and clean them or supply a new case.

Consignments and Trade Ins

We will consider all brass and woodwind instruments for consignment.

We will consider purchasing your used instruments or taking them in as a partial trade-in on another new or pre-owned instrument.

You will receive a receipt for your consignment instrument and any possible repairs needed when you leave your instrument in our violin shop area at the same address. Henry Riedstra will examine your instrument and give you an extimate on value and repair/restoration as soon as possible, sometimes on the spot depending what your instrument needs. Putting your instrument into good "Playing Condition" for example, will be a lower price than restoring the instrument to like new.

Verbal estimates of value cost $45.00 unless the instrument is left on consignment until sold. For some consignment instruments requiring extensive repair, there will be a fee of $50 for any repair estimate that requires more than 15 minutes to examine the instrument, although this is 50% refundable if the instrument is left for repair and consignment.

Accessories - like Mouthpieces, Ligatures, Reeds, pads and swabs, neckstraps, oils and lubricants, cases, gig bags, are also available.
