Repair and tuning

Here are some examples of my repair services:

Casali reeds
  • Fix notes not sounding properly, or silent keys, or sounding out of tune – free stuck reed tongues, replace valves or reeds or the wax seal, plus necessary tuning.
  • Tuning – analysis and reed tuning.
  • Fix stuck or misaligned keys or registers or air buttons.
  • Resolve problems with the bass machine.
  • Resolve air leaks – Hohner Atlantics are a regular in my workshop. !960s models often need replacement pallet leathers.
