Extended Maintenance Services
Nothing is more important to the continued success of a wind musician than regular instrument maintenance so their
instrument is in optimal playing condition. This is why BandSource offers Extended Maintenance Services on all of the
instruments purchased from our company by individual musicians.
Woodwind instruments need regulation and adjustments performed on key mechanisms to maintain proper pad position over
tone holes. Corks and felts on woodwind instruments will need to be replaced from time to time. Brasswind instruments require
a yearly thorough cleaning and lubrication. Rotors will need to be re-strung on french horns & F-Attachment trombones. Water
key corks, piston felts and rubber gaskets on slide stops will eventually need to be replaced. Not to mention, possibly, an
unforeseen, unfortunate accident in which your instrument could require extensive repair work.
BandSourceís Extended Maintenance Services program provides peace of mind for musicians. Whether it is an accident or a
combination of small maintenance needs, they must be addressed on a consistent basis to insure that the instrument, your
investment, retains its playability and value for many years too come.
