Includes cleaning, oiling, hand polishing on the instrument and mechanism to remove tarnish, head joint cork replacement, adjustments, removal of lost motions, leak detection and pad replacement as necessary.
LEAK – happens between the tone hole and the pad where air is escaping creating a slight change in the tamber or/color of the note. It can make the entire instrument not playable, depending on how big and how many leaks you have.
LOST MOTION – happens when you press a key and it doesn't engage the next adjusted key right way and it feels like a bump when you depress the key.

SHIM – a small washer made from plastic or paper that it’s put between the pad and the key to help seal them to the tone hole.
