Hi everyone!

Dave Watson is off on an adventure in the service of the USA government. So he is not servicing clarinets at this time. Also the information in the page here at the forum, Recommended Clarinet Tech Services, is probably out of date. I have one person who has asked for recommendations about tech services. (And I also no longer service clarinets.)

SO who do you all recommend? Are there any of you who would be willing to start doing this for 'fun and profit'?

Hi Phil. You may want to add Daniel Deitch to your list.

Another bump.

I'm back, sort of, but won't have access to any tools or equipment for another couple months. Will try to get back in the saddle ASAP in service of the clarinet world.

In the meantime... who else!?

So Ken had good results with his 1929 Buescher True-Tone adjustable tuning barrel repair.

Yes!  Dan Oberloh of Seattle did a stellar job of freeing up my stuck adjustable tuning neck, removing the stuck bell, fixing a problem with a rod that wouldn’t screw in, and improving a couple buggered up tiny screws.  This was all work that he did on my 1929 Buescher model 731 True Tone clarinet. 

His shop is a place of wonder, his instrument collection is unbelievable, and the experience could not have been more positive.  However, he’s not doing overhauls.  He’s too far behind.  He’s trying to do stuff that other shops can’t do, which makes good sense.
