Time permitting we are putting up basic descriptions of some of the procedures used to repair your instruments. In future I would like to post some more detailed directions for some simple emergency repairs that you could do at home

Note: this is not a how to do it manual, details have been left out or over simplified. This is just so you understand the basic process. Making a mistake during any part of these procedures or using the wrong tools will most likely destroy the instrument!

Cork pads on clarinet

ImageThis is a Selmer series 10S clarinet and a Selmer recital  they are beautiful clarinets in great condition.
 The A in particular does not play as one would expect however, response tuning and tone are poor.
 These are usually very good clarinets. A quick check reveals that the pads do not cover, they are skin pads which have warped over time.

I am going to repad the top joint with cork pads on all keys which are usually in the closed position.
 The other 2 keys will have traditional skin pads.
