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 more.

As well as the woodwind work we offer guitar and violin re-strings. Re-strings are usually done and returned within 30mins.

The price list below gives the usual price of work, excluding parts and spares or extra travel outside of Basingstoke town. We guarantee all work we carry out for 3 months. There are a few 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 will tell you in advance if this is the case once we know the brand of your instrument.

We carry out free collection and return of repair work to all our Basingstoke customers. For those just outside of this area we charge a fee based on location and can quote this in advance.
