SERVICES > Repair > Kimball Electramatics
All repair and restoration is done with time-proven, traditional materials and methods. Efficient, but no short cuts!
Our philosophy is:
First, Do No Harm.
All procedures are done in a manner which is reversible. This is important so that future generations can also repair and restore the instrument when needed.
We use authentic cabinet-maker’s hot glue for all joints as far as is practical. We duplicate traditional materials as closely as possible, purchasing from around the world such items as Australian natural rubber pneumatic cloth, German leather for valves and felt in proper thicknesses and color, and Canadian soundboard-grade spruce and hard rock maple.
