My Buffet R-13's came back from the Brannen's with significant improvements in response and feel after an overhaul.

My Yamaha CSG's came back from Lohff & Pfeiffer after I had played them a lot for about eight years with only basic maintenance, and I was just stunned at how well it played at every single dynamic level after the overhaul. The action was completely silent, the response of the keys was noticeably better, and to top it off it came with a 3-year warranty on the work so minor updates didn't cost me anything except getting it into Wolfgang's hands wherever he was traveling in the US at the time.

John Butler has done fantastic overhauls on a number of instruments for my students...they come back like they are new clarinets!

Competent techs don't just get the clarinet back to spec, they improve aspects of the mechanism, intonation, and response, according to their aesthetic.
