Cork Replacement

     Cork is used on most instruments because of its sealing ability, its flexibility, longevity, and sanding ability. We use corks for clarinet tenons and mouthpieces, saxophone necks, flute headjoints, and many other pieces for regulating keys. Cork wears over time from being compressed or dries from age. Both of which will require cork to be replaced.

Tenon Cork: $28
Woodwind Neck Cork: $22
