Oboe & Cor Anglais (English Horn) Repairs
In the basement of Howarth of London we have a workshop where highly trained and experienced technicians repair, service and overhaul instruments or make 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.
EMERGENCY REPAIRS: Emergency work can usually be accommodated at short notice, but please call before coming to the shop. Minimum charge for while-you-wait pads/corks etc from £10.00 ex-VAT, £12.00 inc-VAT.
If you need your instrument repairing on a Saturday, please contact us ahead of visiting the shop to check that this is possible. We don't currently have a repairer in every Saturday.
For a general service your instrument will need to be in the workshops for approximately 1 week. However, for major overhauls, we may require the instrument for longer.
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
