RMS Artist Overhaul
(RMS used clarinets are fully overhauled.)
- Wood is fully cleaned and oiled.
- Keys and posts are cleaned and polished.
- Tenon corks are replaced.
- All pads are replaced to improve response and evenness throughout the entire instrument. We use a combination of leather and synthetic pads. We prefer and recommend this pad combination, but we can use traditional cork pads on the upper joint, upon request.
- All bumpers are replaced with more durable and reliable materials for optimal mechanism performance.
- The mechanisms are adjusted for crisp and even key action (spring tension is balanced and keys/rings are checked for proper height.)
- Throat G♯ and side F side keys are modified where they reach the instrument’s body to achieve proper contact with the body.
- Tones holes are resurfaced (as needed) to guarantee an optimal seal.
- Final play testing of the clarinet and final adjustments are made.
