RMS Artist Overhaul

All RMS pre-owned 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.
  • 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.)
  • Tones holes are resurfaced (as needed) to guarantee an optimal seal.

“I received the clarinet today, and I must say that as soon as I opened the case, I was amazed at how beautiful it looked. The only thing more beautiful was the quality of the work. The response of the instrument is flawless as well as the ease in which it now plays. I could not ask for the instrument to feel any better under my fingers.“
