Ultrasonic Cleaning: Instrumental Music is proud to offer the remarkable technology of an Omegasonics Music Pro Ultrasonic Cleaner. Ultrasonic cleaning technology is fast, gentle and extremely powerful. It uses microscopic cavitation bubbles and specially formulated eco-friendly solutions to search every crease and crevice of a band instrument and eliminate even stubborn or difficult-to-reach contaminants, including grease, dirt, calcifications, hydrocarbons, metal shavings, buffing/polishing compounds, carbon deposits, mold release and more. Ultrasonic technology uses absolutely no harmful chemicals.
Clean & Flush: To keep your brass instrument in the best shape and prolong its life, a yearly or bi-yearly Clean & Flush is the most effective method to maintain proper piston/slide/rotor action and slide movement. During a Clean & Flush the instrument is examined for excessive wear, loose solder joints, and corrosion. It is disassembled, given an Ultrasonic Cleaning, the interior of the slide tubes and lead pipe are bristle brushed with a detergent, and the exterior slide tube surfaces and pistons/rotors are scoured to remove any remaining deposits. The instrument is reassembled with new felts and water key bumpers, and Hetman synthetic lubricants are used on the slide tubes. For an additional cost, we can polish your silver instrument. Silver cleaning includes a light hand polish of the entire instrument.
Playing Condition: Additional brass work, such as dent work, solder joints, valve or slide work, part replacement, water key repair or modifications, is done by estimate only.
