Oboe

Overhaul

An Overhaul will return your instrument to its original performance specifications. Our experienced technician will disassemble your oboe and remove the pads.  Any plated parts will be ultrasonically cleaned and lightly buffed.  New pads, key corks, and joint corks will be installed in addition to any necessary springs.  Our technician will do all basic swedging and key fitting, minor tenon refitting and minor dent work if needed.  Your oboe will be reassembled, lubricated, performance tested and final adjustments made.  On wood oboes, we will oil the bore and restore the gold leaf where applicable.  We’ll finish off by cleaning your oboe and case to make it performance ready.  Silver or Nickel plating is available for an additional fee, please contact us for an estimate.

Clean and Polish  -

Want your instrument to shine?  We will remove all of the keys.  The body will be Ultrasonically cleaned using high frequency sound waves that compress and expand throughout the instrument.  These waves create a scrubbing cleaning action, resulting in a friendly safe way to clean your instrument without the need of harsh chemicals.   We’ll finish off with a hand polish of the body and keys.
