WorkBench

School’s out and it’s time to look at which instruments need repair. Some of the key things that need to happen with instruments over the summer are:

Instrument cleaning (I recommend  ultrasonic cleaning whenever possible) Cases vacuumed and cleaned Mouthpieces washed and inspected for damage

Today I’d like to offer some tips, from my perspective at the repair bench, to help you both correctly store instruments over the summer and be ready for the back-to-school season which sneaks up on us so fast.
