Woodwind Tech
Saxophone Repads and Repair

Woodwind Tech provides professional care to your saxophone.  Whether a repad, overhaul, 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 40 years.
I play 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.

If you are not in nee
d of a repad I will also effect necessary repairs only.

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