Kal-Tone Restoration Work
Restorations usually involve multiple large operations and take more time to complete. Often times these come in the way of heirlooms, long neglected pieces, or severely damaged instruments. Pricing is a little different, as the work tends to be less straightforward than standard repairs. We go through everything with you up front so you know exactly what to expect.
