Collective wisdom,

The thread about repair technicians prompted a question from someone who
has used a no-name wooden clarinet for a long time. The question is
this. If the mechanical parts are at least marginally functional and the
wood is in reasonably good shape, can an expert repair/rebuild tech
adjust tone holes, bore, key heights, etc. to make an instrument like
mine sound, play and feel like a professional-quality instrument? I
guess I'm really asking if it's possible, regardless of cost, to make a
silk purse from a sow's ear.
