Our estimates and consultations are always free of charge. It is impossible to know just how much work an instrument requires without an in-person estimate. Following a brief evaluation of your instrument we will let you know what to expect at various levels of service from the most basic setup to a complete overhaul. If you have a specific budget we will always make sure to prioritize our repairs in order to give you the best value possible.
Standard Setup & Basic Repairs: $100-300
Our Clavinet Standard Setup makes sure that the mechanics of the instrument are playing properly and the pickups are set in proper dynamic position. This setup usually includes basic repairs (such as string replacement and electronics troubleshooting) so that the instrument has proper timbre and healthy dynamic response.
|Clavinet Standard Setup||1-3 Hr|
|String Replacement||~$25 (Possibly Included in Setup Above)|
|Action & Key Bed Adjustments||>1 Hr|
|Electronics Repairs||~1 Hr|
Partial and Complete Restorations: $500-1,500+
The “Sweet Spot” and “Top Shelf”
For most Clavinets the “Sweet Spot” for services usually falls between between a partial and complete restoration. Prioritization of services for a partial restoration depends on an evaluation of the instrument in order to give our services a more solid seal of approval. Our“Top Shelf” includes a complete restoration of the instrument including all new strings, yarn, hammer tips, and electronics servicing/upgrades.
Pianet services include the most simple setups and tuning to a thorough overhaul of the instrument. Time frames and what we consider the “Sweet Spot” varies depending on the model of the Pianet and its condition.
