Woodwind Tech
Saxophone Repads and Repair

Woodwind Tech provides professional care to your saxophone.  Whether a repad or other repair work, Dave Henry of Woodwind Tech gives each instrument personal attention. A quality repad or COA (Clean, Oil, Adjust) will restore your sax to a playing condition, possibly even better than when it was purchased new.  Dave has been repairing and learning new techniques for 45+ years.
I play some sax, so I am aware of how the instrument should respond. Often, the reason a sax does not play well is because there are multiple small leaks throughout the instrument. Some leaks are from seepage through a porous leather pad. It makes a huge difference to seal all the little leaks.

If you are not in need of a repad I will effect necessary repairs only.  If optimum playability is the goal, I will dismantle the horn, check each pad, reassemble, sealing leaks as I go. This is a COA, and can be done if pads are mostly new.

Make an appointment for estimate or service. Serving the Cleveland Ohio area.
No charge for consultation or estimate.
