Repairing, servicing and overhauling bassoons is at the core of what we do.
We have fully equipped workshops with lathes, milling machine, drill press and a myriad of hand tools. Plus of course highly trained and capable repair staff to operate it.
Every bassoon we sell goes through our workshop and comes out operationally as good as new, and cosmetically often pretty close to new as well. In addition we have many, many customers sending us their bassoons for servicing and overhaul - from the UK, Europe and further afield - including bassoonists from top orchestras around the world.
