Here you will find my personal reviews of instruments that have been repaired or overhauled at MRO saxophones, and of which little or no information is available on the Internet.

On customer request MRO saxophones performed a modification to the LH pinky plateau of a Buescher 400 baritone saxophone. The modification wias performed because the LH plateau of these saxophones is quite heavy to operate.

MRO Saxophones carries out revisions to both modern and vintage instruments. That is one of our core tasks.
Here you can find some examples of these revisions.

In november 2017 heeft MROsaxofoons twee populaire klarinetten van Buffet Crampon tegelijkertijd gereviseerd. Dat was tevens een prima kans om eindelijk eens nauwkeurig te bepalen wat de daadwerkelijke verschillen zijn tussen deze twee types. De RC wordt beschouwd als het instap-professionele model; de E13 als een Intermediate model. Omdat ik beide types al vele malen eerder heb gereviseerd had ik al in gedachte dat de verschillen minimaal waren, zeker bij de oudere modellen.

Here is the list of the different Selmer mouthpieces for clarinet and saxophone, with their associated markings.

There are many different types of clarinets built by Selmer (Paris), each with their own special features. Here's the serial number list of these clarinets, with the addition of a list of the various bores and barrel sizes.

For those interested: here's the tablature on the Selmer Marchi clarinet. This is nowhere else to be found .....
 

During the summer of 2015 four pieces of clarinet Leblanc LL came in for revision at MRO Saxophones. An excellent opportunity to compare these four clarinets and have a good look at the differences among them.

MRO saxophones recently started on the overhaul of an alto saxophone Buescher Aristocrat "Big B'. Because we also have an almost identical spare body of a the same type of horn I did some research on any differences.
