REPAIRS

KURT HEISIG HAS BEEN REPAIRING INSTRUMENTS FOR 54 YEARS.

 

IN 1976 HE WAS OFFERED THE DEPARTMENT CHAIR IN THE REPAIR SCHOOL OF A DISTINGUISHED STATE COLLEGE.

 

IN 1981 HE AND RALPH MORGAN, THE RETIRED CHIEF WOODWIND DESIGNER AT SELMER USA BECAME FRIENDS AND MR HEISIG WAS MENTORED BY RALPH FOR 26 YEARS.

 

SAXES

 

OLD SELMER MK VI SAXOPHONES HAVE BEEN A PARTICULAR SPECIALTY OF OURS SINCE THE MID ' 70'S. WE REBUILD THOSE TO FACTORY SPECS, BUT A LITTLE BETTER, AND DONE BY A MASTER REPAIRMAN, NOT A PRODUCTION WORKER.

 

WE INCORPORATE IDEAS THAT RALPH MORGANS FATHER, RALPH MORGAN, LEARNED FROM OLD WORKERS AT THE CONN PLANT 100 YEARS AGO. IDEAS THAT ARE JUST NOT AVAILABLE IN NEW SAXES TODAY, EXCEPT, OF COURSE, THE HEISIG SAXOPHONE.

 

AT TIMES WE EVEN INCLUDE CONCEPTS OF THE LATE VERN BUCK, WHO DID THE STUDIO PLAYERS HORNS FOR DECADES IN LA.

 

OF COURSE, WE DO OTHER BRANDS AS WELL, AND OFTEN RE-ENGINEER HORNS FOR PLAYERS GIVING THEM RADICALLY BETTER PERFORMANCE.

 

CLARINETS

 

AGAIN, WE DO ALL BRANDS, BUT R13 BUFFETS AND SELMER 9*S ARE COMPANY SPECIALTIES.

 

OUR OVERHAULS RADICALLY IMPROVE THE ORIGINAL FACTORY PLAYING OF INSTRUMENTS.

FACTORIES HAVE TO PRODUCE SO MANY "UNITS" A DAY. WE HAVE TO LEAVE YOU WITH A GRIN EVERY TIME YOU PLAY THE HORN!

 

ANY CLARINET CAN BE IMPROVED.

 

VIRTUALLY ALL CLARINETS CAN BE IMPROVED A GREAT DEAL FOR A SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY, CHANGING OUT 3 PADS THAT ARE ALMOST ALWAYS PUT IN WRONG.

 

THE LARGER CLARINETS, LIKE ALTO AND BASS, CAN BE REBUILT TO PLAY REMARKABLY WELL, AND WE SURPRISE PLAYERS WITH THE FLEXIBILITY, TONE AND POWER THEY DIDN'T KNOW THEIR INSTRUMENT POSESSED.
