After over a decade of dreaming of opening my own repair shop, that dream became a reality in 2016. Though I have recently started selling clarinets and accessories, repairs will always be at the center of what I do at North Country Winds. NCW focuses on artist level clarinet repairs, using the highest quality tools and supplies.
Q: Do you do repairs on other woodwind instruments?
Since my focus is on clarinets, I have specialized tools and supplies intended for clarinets. If I can accommodate repairs on another instrument, I will consider taking the job. Other instruments that I will occasionally repair are saxophones and oboes. I rarely take professional flute or bassoon repair jobs, due to their specialized nature.
Q: Do you work on brass instruments?
A: Yes, but only ultrasonic cleanings
I have a 30 gallon ultrasonic cleaning tank, which I use for clarinet overhauls and clean/oil/adjust jobs. That tank will fit brass instruments as large as a euphonium. Since clarinets don't get dents or stuck slides and valves, I don't have brass repair tooling.
I receive clarinet repairs from all over the country. If you are interested in having your instrument repaired, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
