We use the best material and the finish is applied in the best possible manner, but no guarantee can be given.

If the complete bell or the main slide is ordered separately, the price in finish 1, 1 1/2, or 2 is exactly half of the list price of the instrument in that particular finish. (For other finishes ask for quotation.)

The cost of lacquering used instruments is higher because the instrument must first be thoroughly cleaned, overhauled, and all dents and scratches removed. Even the slightest finger mark would cause the lacquer to peel. The instrument being free of dents, lacquering costs approximately $7.50 including cleaning and polishing. All other repairs are charged for in addition and are subject to our regular rates based on the actual working-time necessary to perform first class job.
