Premium Upgrade

  • Want the Best? Add our Premium Upgrade for $299
    Our "Premium Rebuilds" offer you the fastest & quietest action we can offer. The most important difference is Teflon and Ultrasuede friction reduction, as well as Techcork bumpers, high-density black felt and disks, and synthcork quieting, throughout the rebuild. We specifically dedicate our expertise to choose which cork/ teflon product (all in varying thickness) will work best for each moving component on your specific saxophone make & model!
    *Techcork: dense, rubber-like compound, waterproof, does not compress over time like Natural Cork.
    *Synthcork: spongy, rubber compound that is an excellent noise reducer/shock absorber.
    *Teflon/Felt: ultra smooth combination we purposefully use back-to-back for the fastest action.
    *We, of course, dive deeper into the mechanical clearances - swedging, pivot screw depths and fit, etc.
    *....and other WWS secrets.
