Musical Instrument Parts and Repair Tools
« on: June 24, 2014, 07:12:27 PM »
Just wanted to let you all know about a supplier of repair parts and tools - maybe more brass orientated than clarinet, but could be of some use to some of you adventurous shade tree instrument \"technicians\" ;)

Waving back from under the shade tree, here...

I was experiencing some joint pain and some symptoms of carpal tunnel from the clarinet work I\'ve started doing.  The Votaw clarinet jig is pricey for what you get at $170+, but I can do a lot more without abusing my hands quite as much, and I have been more productive.  Best of all, the hands feel much better.  Your mileage may vary.  I know a couple of pro techs who swear by the saxophone jig as well.
