Solder– $15-$25 per point

Think of solder as a very strong adhesive.  If there is too much stress, or the adhesive gets worn out, it needs to be replaced.  Soldering has many variables (solder type, if the piece is bent, if the piece is dirty).  Every solder job is different.  We can solder your instrument back together AND clean up after ourselves.
