Play Condition Restoration

Includes all of the above, plus more substantial dent work, replacing the leadpipe if necessary, and re-plating the valves if they are substantially leaking, pitted or worn. The aim of this service is to restore an instrument to 100% playability without the expense of a complete restoration. With this service the instrument would not be re-lacquered or re-plated, but would be made to look as good as possible within the prescribed budget, whether it is an instrument that does not need a restoration, just some substantial dent work and minor buffing and spot-lacquering to make it look virtually new, or if it is an instrument that could really use a refinishing, but the owner’s budget dictates otherwise.
