Instrument Refresh Prices

An instrument refresh is a repair that should be done yearly in order to keep an instrument in top playing condition. All refresh rates are calculated around the current shop repair rate of $65/hr plus cost of parts; solders and excessive dents are extra. Instruments are taken by appointment so that they spend the least amount of time in our hands and the most time in yours.
