Silver restorations are the most common. We do not "Re-Lacquer" saxes. While not every sax can qualify for the labor-intensive work of a Restoration, we have done more than a few sentimental projects to bring saxes back to life! You don't need a 5-digit Selmer to warrant having this type of Restoration.
There are a variety of options in a WWS Restoration. The most common, and recommended one, is "Silver" (shiny or Matte). But we've also been part of "Bare Brass"--shiny or matte, "Gold" -- shiny or matte, Nickel, and a blend of a few options. Billing quotes are always customized, however, you'll certainly need to budget $3,000.00 to do yourself justice.
