What is Woodwind & Brasswind ShopCheck?
The Woodwind & Brasswind's ShopCheck™ logo assures you that your instrument has been thoroughly evaluated and adjusted for playability at manufacturers' specifications before you buy it. Trained technicians in our own shop perform the free ShopCheck™—a value-added instrument service you won't find just anywhere. The Woodwind & Brasswind's ShopCheck™ testing and adjustment is just one more way that we help give you peace of mind and confidence in your musical instrument purchase. All instruments that receive the thorough ShopCheck™ are inspected and adjusted to optimal playing conditions so you can be confident that your woodwind or brass instrument is ready to play properly right out of the case.
