Repads, Repair and Overhauls for

Flute Clarinet Saxophone


Woodwind Tech provides professional care to your woodwind instrument.  Whether it be a  repad, overhaul, or regular maintenance, Dave Henry of Woodwind Tech gives each instrument personal attention. A quality repad will restore your instrument to a playing condition, possibly even better than when it was purchased new.  Dave has been repairing and learning new techniques for 35 years.
Since I play flute and other woodwinds, I can tell if an instrument is not playing to its full potential.  And I also know what to do to get it right.
If you are not in need of a repad, I will also effect necessary repairs only.  Or, if you just have a question,  davehenry777@yahoo.com   Or call 216 586 4813

Please make an appointment for estimate or service. Serving the Cleveland Ohio area.
If shipping,  email me for the address.
