ProShop Overhauled in our ClarinetRepairs.com ProShop
We have completely overhauled this clarinet with our best, signature job. This job addresses EVERYTHING that goes out of whack on a clarinet through use. We first level every tonehole and re-cut their extruding profiles so that you have a secure area for the pad to seal on. The profile recut allows for an even 360 degree air expansion as the air exits the tonehole. This helps to resolve stuffy notes and allows the clarinet to play more balanced between notes.In the lower joint and the bridge key, we used a professional grade double bladder pad. However, in the upper joint, we upgraded the pads to our professional pad of choice, the Master Series by Valentino. The Master Series pads feature the tonal performance and stability of a cork pad but with far less noise.
We also use a higher end pad on this overhaul. In the upper joint, we upgrade the pads to our professional pad of choice, the Master Series by Valentino. The Master Series pads feature the tonal performance and stability of a cork pad but with far less noise. These pads have longer life than traditional pads. In the lower joint (and the bridge key), we install a white kangaroo leather pad. These offer exceptional durability and performance.
