Cracks or Broken Tenons

Cracks in a wooden clarinet need attention as soon as that are noticed. If a crack is repaired early it will reduce leaks and major damage. Most cracks can be repaired by pinning the crack so it doesn’t spread further and fill the area to hide the crack, prices start at $25.00 per pin.

Some damage may need a tenon or even the body graf. This is a very major repair that would only be estimated after inspection of the instrument.


All other small repairs need to be estimated: dent work, small adjustments, replacing a few pads, key corks and clean and polish. Estimates are free and will be done while you wait.
