History: MRO saxophones arose from a personal need. As experienced musicians can testify maintenance of a woodwind instrument is of great importance for the sound, playability and durability of the instrument. Maintenance and repair by regular music business/shop is often a costly affair, and the quality of the work leaves much to be desired. As saxophonist / clarinetist with over 30 years experience and a technical background MRO saxophones was founded in 2008 with the idea to specialize in this business, with customer wishes at first priority.
MRO: The abbreviation MRO is used internationally in engineering and stands for Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul. That's exactly what our main task is……
Modification: MRO saxophones also specializes in (ergonomic) adaptations and modifications for your particular instrument. Tuning problems are a well known problem that can be solved by MRO saxophones. After modification the instrument will play and tune much better as a standard instrument. This has not only to do with the position of the mouth piece and the height of the key work, but also with the bore and dimensions of the neck. Professional modification of your saxophone neck is our specialization: MRO saxophones knows how this can be done for your instrument!
