Our Service

At CY Music we have been repairing flutes and clarinets since 2010, we can deal with all your yearly servicing needs and most common repairs that will cause the instrument to stop playing properly. All our work is carried out "in house" and we have most work finished in a week or less.

After completing training at the Trevor Head School for instrument repair we are able to offer work for re-pads, re-cork, new springs and so much more. We are planning on adding saxophone and trumpet work in the future.

As well as the woodwind work we offer guitar and violin re-strings. As well as other jobs including fixing tuning heads/pegs, broken bridge pins and other maintenance work. Re-strings are done within 24 hours. Single strings can be done while you wait.

The price list below gives the usual price of work, excluding parts and spares. We guarantee all work we carry out for 3 months. There are a number of models of instrument that are of extremely low quality for these we must charge an extra £17.50 to the job and can only guarantee work for two weeks.

We also offer free collection and return of repair work to all our Winchester and Basingstoke customers.
