Crowthers Commitment to quality: We believe that all musicians, from beginner to professional, deserve to play on instruments of the highest quality, correctly set-up and properly maintained. Every instrument purchased from Crowthers is professionally set-up by a highly experienced technician in our workshop, and on all new instruments we offer a six month check-over service free of charge.
At Crowthers we have expert on-site repairers with extensive experience from major instrument manufacturers. Our workshop caters for a wide variety of repair and servicing requirements from minor adjustments, tenon and crook recorks and on-the-spot repairs, up to full overhauls.
We have looked after instruments for leading musicians such as John Harle (saxophone), Paul Booth (saxophone), John Surman (saxophone), Dave Winthrop (saxophone), Nicholas Daniel (oboe) and Alison Teale (oboe and cor anglais). We are regularly asked to undertake work for schools around the county in addition to Kent Music, the county music service.
"Kevin Maloney is simply one of the best saxophone repairers and technicians that I've worked with. Over a lifetime of professional saxophone playing, where speed of work, precision and dependability are what one needs from a repairer, there are few people in the UK who have the confidence, skill level and flexibility of Kevin.
He is not only highly recommended - he is one of the finest technician-artists I've encountered...a real gem." (John Harle)
We recommend your instrument is serviced annually to keep it in best playing order. We are happy to provide a detailed assessment free of charge, and we will recommend a course of action to get the best result.
All instruments are thoroughly checked in our workshop prior to being offered for sale, and we offer a free six month service on all new instruments, and provide a service record with 10% loyalty discount on all servicing and repairs for the instrument’s life.
You are welcome to visit the shop with your instrument, however we are also happy to accept instruments for service or repair by post. Please let us know in advance if you would like to do this.
