These are the go-to pliers for most repair shops, and are one of our favorite all around pliers because of its versatility. The hard coated tapered steel jaws feature a small working surface at the tip to allow you to get into tight spaces. The parallel jaw action gives you a solid grip and aids in bending keywork and springs. The handle is sprung, but the springs are easily removable to suit your preference. Try coating the jaws with leather or teflon to reduce marring on keywork. The Small Chain Nose Pliers are excellent for flute and clarinet work, and the Medium Chain Nose Pliers will work great for saxophone.
