your question depends on the absolute price of the overhaul. Can you
tell how high it is? I asked my repairsman for a while about the price
of an overhaul, it would be about 960,- DM. Don't know which material
he takes for the pads, but I would guess it is leather.


Dear Dirk

this year my bass clarinet (a Frere Martin from 1896) got a complete
overhaul in Utrecht. It cost me Dfl 400, some 350 DM. And it really was a
COMPLETE overhaul"suddenly it played in une and with much greater ease, all
keys close perfectly again, etc. I really can advice you Van Ingen
Blaasinstrumenten in Utrecht: for the difference in price you could make the
trip even from as far away as Dresden (or Freiburg, for that sake), bring
your instrument to Dick, come and see me, and pick a better instrument up
