Brass instrument servicing in South Yorkshire

Are you looking for brass instrument servicing? Contact Keith Alderson Woodwind & Brass Repairs. I provide brass instrument servicing in Doncaster.

The servicing of a brass instrument includes:

  • Stripping down the instrument to remove any corrosion in valve casings and ports
  • Descaling whole instrument either chemically or mechanically as appropriate
  • Cleansing in an ultrasonic cleaning tank
  • Polishing and cleaning of slide legs, valves and casings as required
  • Lapping in any sluggish valves
  • Replacement of any corks, felts, springs and guides at cost of the parts
  • Our ultrasonic cleaning tank uses ultrasound in water, or an appropriate solvent and creates millions of tiny, controlled bubble explosions to deep clean your instruments.
  • Safe and thorough cleaning technology

    If you’re looking for saxophone servicing or saxophone repairs, contact Keith Alderson Woodwind & Brass Repairs. I use a safe, thorough cleaning technology, which reaches all the nooks and crannies inaccessible through manual cleaning methods. It is ideal for cleansing valves and valve casings and effectively removes any lapping compound.

    Once the servicing is complete, the brass instrument is lubricated, reassembled and test played to ensure it is in working order. Price will be given on application for full overhaul or lacquering, as my polishing, re-lacquering and silver plating service is outsourced. Smaller instruments will be placed in the tank but, due to its space limitations, separate components of larger instruments will be cleansed individually.
