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.
