Recorders are made from wood. As wood is a living material it is quite possible that over the years the instrument undergoes undesirable changes.

Most of it can be repaired…

- Responsiveness /Voicing can be adapted
- Correction of internal bore

Instrument blocked up/croaky:
- Responsiveness /Voicing can be adapted

Intonation of separate notes/whole instrument sounds impure:
- Responsiveness /voicing can be adapted
- Correction of internal bore
- Retuning of single tone holes

Cracks in the wood:
- can be glued
-rings made from wood or vegetable ivory can be put on

Mortise and tennon joint too loose:
- new twine
- new cork

Mortise and tennon joint too tight:
