My way of making recorders is to make an instrument which will fit the style of the player it belongs to. Therefore I would like to have the cooperation of the player to make the recorder as personal as possible.

So, during the first three years you can, free of charge, come back to me with your instrument at any time (for instance when you want a different kind of sound) and I will adjust the recorder to your personal taste and style.

Also free of charge and during the first three years, I will do any repair which has to do with changes in sound, stability etc. or when there is a crack in the  instrument.

Not under guarantee are a damaged thumbhole or problems caused by improper usage of the recorder.

After three years I might charge you for repairs, depending of the amount of work required.

Each order should be accompanied by a deposit of 20% of the price of the recorder you ordered. Payment of this deposit is confirmation of your order.
