Basic maintenance and cleanings on your horn should occur once a year. Elemental Brass utilizes mild, organic chemical cleaning and careful ultrasonic cleanings to restore your horn to its best playing condition. Contact us to schedule a repair or basic maintenance today!

Ultrasonic Cleaning

The deepest clean possible for a horn. Ultrasonic vibrations lift dirt and debris from the metal of a horn and filter it away in an non toxic cleaning solution. This takes manual cleaning one step further and is the most advanced technique available for cleaning a horn safely. Full disassembly, ultrasonic and organic chemical cleaning, lubrication, string and bumper replacement, all reachable dents removed, reassembly, and play test

  • Standard Double Horn- $165

  • Full Triple Horn- $235

 

Dent Removal

This is not always purely aesthetic. Dent removal can add stress to a horn if carried out improperly and done with only the goal of “looking like it did before”. While this is easily achievable in most cases further steps must take place to assure your horn plays as well as it did before the damage occurred. All dent work at Elemental Brass is carried out in the proper manner to assure your horn plays as well if not better than when it arrived.

  • Hourly- $85

  • Minimum charge- $25

 

Broken Solder Joint

Broken solder joints typically occur when a brace is under stress, when a previous solder job was carried out incorrectly or when damage has occurred to the horn. These joints can be easily mended in most cases but typically require other follow up work and are merely an indication of a deeper issue.

  • Per point- $15
