 Overhaul expectations
Author: Musikat

So having made the leap to get my instrument completely overhauled (as in everything taken off, cleaned, wood treatment, new springs, pads, tone holes, adjustment, the works), I borrowed someone else's clarinet. It is an Evette and Schaeffer in top shape, and it plays wonderfully. Notes just respond better, the upper register pops out easily, and it is better in tune than mine.

Can I expect mine to come back in similar condition? I have an R13 that has had regular service, pads as needed, etc., but I honestly don't think I ever had a complete overhaul done before. It is a 1977 horn. I don't want to get my expectations too high. Have your full overhauls restored the instrument to the point that it responds and tunes much better than before?

I am also getting the keys replated due to a nickel allergy, so it will be gone for a month and a half, so I have a lot of time to get used to the other instrument and don't want to be disappointed after spending all that money.
