Clarinet repair....    15:59 on Saturday, May 22, 2004 Vote for this post Vote against this post 0 votes

Hi, im mainly a sax and guitar player but i have a very old Eb clarinet that needs some work done. Id like to learn to do the work myself, this clarinet definetely needs to be repadded, and possibly recorked. I dunno if i can use cork on this, when i bought it all the pieces had red twine instead of cork, it was very worn so i replaced it with sewing string, it works but isnt the greatest fit. Id like to have cork put on if it can be done w/o permanently modifying the instrument, anyone know if that is possible? Also where can i find repad kits for these, and are the kits brand specific or are there "universal" kits as well? Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated Thanks!
Greg

corks shouldn`t hurt, and only do the pads if you learn how first, otherwise, you`ll be replacing them once a week, there are universal pad sets, try www.music123.com. they have everything you need. im in the middle of repairing two old clarinets myself.
