care and maintenance sheets

A side by side comparison of a very dirty saxophone pad and tone-hole, and its cleaned up counterpart.

A dramatic before and after of an low E-flat pad on a student saxophone. Replacing pads is part of normal maintenance on woodwind instruments.

Our hope for all our customers is that you will see your instrument as a valuable tool for your continued musical journey. As with any tool, care must be taken to ensure that it remains in good working order. To that end, we have provided some care sheets that you are free to download. They are geared towards students and are designed to be a tool for teachers as well as for our rental customers.
