Sax ProShop Courses

For years, the technicians in the ProShop have given NAPBIRT clinics, clinics to repair students, college students as well as clinics at MusicMedic.com for techs and players all over the world. The ProShop’s innovative approach to repair has brought saxophone repair to a new level, with specialists in every aspect of saxophone repair and overhaul. With our revolutionary approach to overhauling saxophones, the Sax ProShop is able to consistently produce extremely high quality saxophone overhaul: which we call Uberhauls. Our technicians are truly specialists, not only in the field of saxophone repair but in their specific discipline.

The Sax ProShop technicians are happy to invite you to come to the shop, sit at our benches, and learn each aspect of the repair from technicians that do that job every day.
Although the courses are available to anyone, they will be the most useful to a technician who has done extensive work on saxophones or has experience in the band instrument repair trade for 5+ years.

5 Day ProShop Immersion Program:

Work closely with the techs in the ProShop for an overview of all techniques and methods involved out Uberhaul. Sit and work with our professional technicians at their benches learning our proven approach to each aspect of the Uberhaul. This course has a focus on the mechanical repair aspects, and is a very concentrated 5 day workshop. Send a pro level horn in advance, and we will build a specific course around your background and the horn chosen. This is the ideal course for anyone looking for insight into our assembly line style repair shop or those looking to greatly improve their saxophone work.

Requirements:
-We will ask you to tell us about your repair experience or have you send a resume if you have one. This will help us design your course.
-A Modern style alto or tenor must send it in advance for assessment/prep-work*

*May require additional fee based on the quality or condition of the horn you send. Don't worry about sending your horn, we will help you get it here safely. We're experts at shipping saxophones.

10 Day UberTraining Course:

Learn to Uberhaul your horn with the crew of the Sax ProShop. Work closely with the specialists in our shop, spending ten days going through each station from quoting, body work, to key fitting and tone holes, to finally dry fitting, padding and tuning. This course is intense, and will require participants to work in a fast-paced environment, but will allow most techs to leave with a horn that they have personally Uberhauled under the direct supervision of the sax ProShop specialists. We do require a horn to be shipped in advance for this program as well, but do not limit the saxophone to an alto or tenor. Each course will be customized for the repair tech and based around the horn sent. Prices below are for alto and tenor other instrument may take longer and cost more.
