Recorders are made from wood. As wood is a living construction material it is quite possible, as time goes by, unwanted changes in the instrument will occur.

Most of it can be repaired…

If the sound is not as good as it used to be:

- Responsiveness /Voicing can be adapted

- Correction of internal bore


Instrument blocked up/croaky:

- Responsiveness /Voicing can be adapted

Intonation of separate notes/whole instrument sounds impure: 

- Responsiveness /voicing can be adapted

- Correction of internal bore

- Retuning of single tone holes

Cracks in the wood:

- can be glued

- rings made from wood or vegetable ivory can be put on

Mortise and tennon joint too loose:
- new twine
- new cork


 Mortise and tennon joint too tight:
- new twine

And lots more…
