The instrument is carefully inspected by us to make certain its spotlessly clean. We disinfect the exterior of the instrument, spray the exterior of the case as well. We do not send anything to you without its being checked and then checked again. A FEW WORDS ABOUT OUR SENDING ON APPROVAL.
Weve had the same policy for half a century, are always happy to send almost anything for a short trial period. Five days is, we believe, sufficient for a trained musician to decide if the item sent them is a good match. With recorders, clarinets, flutes, and oboes, we remove all the keywork, then give the bodies a quick bath. Soap and water, but not long enough to harm the finish.
Keys are lightly sprayed with a disinfectant and pads are lightly swabbed with the same. Then, back in the case after a spray to the exterior and carrying handles of the case. Not sure what the other shops are doing about this issue (Ive asked and have had no replies), but we think our clean-up work is exactly whats required to keep everybody safe. THIS RARE AND BEAUTIFUL PRO-MODEL TRUMPET was recently acquired from an estate. It's one of G.LeBlanc's French trumpets, as used by Al Hirt and some of the Vegas pros. Think Conrad Gozzo played one. It came to us in totally original condition, 90% (or more) original dark lacquer, some minor solder work, almost invisible and with valves that are absolutely perfect. No major dents or dings, no thin spots, no patches. Original case not perfect, but close. Made in the early / mid sixties, popular for a time with jazzers.
Made under license by Courtois. Perfect for somebody wanting a fine pro-model trumpet that's totally original, clean and not costly. In January of 2021, our small workshop in Wichita celebrated sixty-eight years in business. We are not in the 1952 Wichita telephone directory, but we ARE in the 1953. Over the decades, weve repaired and restored thousands of wind instruments, specializing in pro-quality brass and woodwinds.
We are not amateurs, nor are we a back bedroom operation. We would be pleased to furnish you with references attesting to the above.
Its in addition to any factory guarantees. For two full years, we will repair or replace, whichever in our estimation is the more advisable, pads, corks, springs or other parts required, at no charge to the customer.
If your instrument sustains damage to the body, end bow, neck or bell, well burnish out the dents and make it look like new again. Wichita Band Instrument Company maintains a repair department capable of restoration work of the highest quality. Even though repairs are essentially free for the first two years, after that period has expired, we remain at your service to maintain and repair your musical equipment forever.Its our service after the sale promise and has been since 1953! Anything we sell can be sent to you for a short approval period without obligation. Were happy to correspond with musicians, players, parents and enthusiasts of all types. Written appraisals are always available, but please dont write or telephone and ask whats grannys baritone sax worth?
