Tenor Madness uses the finest grade materials available, with careful attention paid to detail. You decide what kind of resonator, pad, and pad treatment you would like us to use. Each player, instrument, and mouthpiece makes a unique combination- a combination we try to take into consideration when we repair your instrument.

A complete mechanical restoration is required if an instrument needs extensive dent work and/or has extensive key wear or other repair issues. Baritone sax by quote only. Please email us your questions about our full restoration work or to inquire if your horn is a candidate for this type of work. Only a limited number of time slots are available for personalized mechanical restorations. We are always up front about our schedule so you know how long your horn will be in the shop.
