We adjust the repair according to your wishes and your French horn's needs. To give you an accurate estimate of the repair or service needed, our technicians need to inspect your French horn. This is free but requires that we have the instrument at hand. You are always welcome to visit our shop, send us an e-mail (with pictures and a description of the problem), or send us the instrument. Contact us if you need help with the shipping.




We control all solderings and give you a status of the general condition. 

  • Loosening of slides
  • Ultrasonic cleaning and descaling
  • Change of water key cork
  • Valves are oiled and slides lubricated
  • The French horn is test played
