As a woodwind technician of 25 years, I am very excited to be able to present this information to you. It is not every day that I get to speak with clients in such detail about these topics. I see so many problems presented here at the repair workshop that could easily be avoided if the knowledge were to be made available more widely.
All of us at Ozwinds Brisbane are excited to meet you and provide you with the best information and expertise that we possibly can. If there is anything we can help you with, please feel free to contact us at any time.
