 RE: R-13 overhaul

If you wanna pay an arm and a leg plus a few organs, Tim Clark, Clark Fobes, and Brannen Woodwinds do fine work. I know Tim Clark usually has a waiting list several months long. (aside: Last summer at the Ohio ClarinetFest, a friend of mine scheduled a time to send his horns to Tim about 5 months after ClarinetFest.) Brannen is probably similar. I'm not sure about Clark's schedule.. and i think he's a bit less expansive as the others.

I personally use a repair guy in Davenport, IA. An overhaul for an R-13 only costs around $300 or so and he usually does more work than required for a standard overhaul. Last Spring, i sent my Selmer Mark VII alto in for a repad... about a $230 job. And he sent it back with about $475 in repairs that i never knew it needed (and some i knew it needed but weren't terribly crucial at the time) at no additional charge. I had my clarinet in and out in just over a week (shipping to and from Houston, TX included in the time frame), and my sax in and out in two.

I don't have his info handy at the moment but if you're interested in getting in touch with him, feel free to e-mail me and i can find his card.
