This service includes a detailed inspection of the wood, hemp joints, pipe bag, and reeds. We will play and trouble shoot your instrument then contact you with our results and suggestions. Nothing will be done to your pipes prior to speaking with you.While the initial inspections are always free, customers will be charged the actual cost of shipping the pipes back to their owner (this will be via USPS - uninsured - priority mail unless otherwise requested by customer).
Do you have a bag that you need tied in? If so we can do that for you. Whether it is a synthetic or hide bag that needs cut and tied in, we can take case of it.All you need to do is to send us your stocks and new bag, or place an order for a bag and send in your stocks.We will make sure that your bag is airtight, and, if you require it, season your pipe bag. The cost for this service is $20.00 plus return shipping and the cost of seasoning, if required.
If your pipes need re hemping, we are happy to help. We will re hemp all of the hemp joints on your pipes for you!!I use black waxed hemp on the hemp joints going into the stocks, and yellow un-waxed hemp on the tuning slides (with cobblers wax next to the wood and bees wax on the exterior). Of course we will re-hemp them any way you like!!The price for this service is $20.00 with your hemp, or $20.00 plus the cost of materials used. If we provide the hemp and wax, you will receive the balance of unused hemp and wax.
