Brass Repair

All brass instruments can be serviced, including trumpets, cornets, euphoniums, trombones, and tubas. Clean and Flush includes:

  • The instrument is completely disassembled and cleaned in a mild bio-degradable, environmentally-friendly chemical solution that will not harm the instrument and will not leave any toxic residues.
  • A power-driven flush system is used to polish the interior with a cleaning solution slurry to remove calcium and other deposits.
  • Any tarnish on silver-plated instruments is chemically removed.
  • The instrument is reassembled with all new top- and bottom-valve felts and corks in addition to water key corks.
  • The valve alignment is checked for optimal playing.
  • The valves are oiled and all slides are greased.
