In our workshop at Howarth of London our highly trained and experienced technicians repair, service and overhaul instruments. We also undertake made-to-measure alterations to customers' specifications. Their services are in great demand and we suggest you call well ahead (see "Contacting us" link on the left) to book your instrument in.
During Covid-19 restrictions
We are not currently able to offer emergency repairs or specifically Saturday repairs (see our current COVID in-store and instrument-handling policies). All repairs need to be booked in advance, and we will undertake work as speedily as we can.
For a general service your instrument will need to be in the workshop for approximately 1 week, not including any quarantining time. However, for major overhauls, we may require the instrument for longer.
Keywork repairs and alterations, silver plating, tuning, restoration etc. also undertaken. Please contact the Howarth bassoon department for further information.
Because each instrument is individually assessed, currently we prefer not to list prices here. If you would like any further information regarding charges, or to book an appointment, please contact the chief technician, Neil Clark, in the repair workshop
