Our one year service coverage provides adjustments, cleaning, and maintenance on your instrument for maximum playability. We cover wear-and-tear items that the warranty doesn't cover, like pads, corks, and springs...everything but denting and abuse. (Which means, folks, that we don't cover marching band damage, either. Trampling is NOT covered under this program! ) With a beginning student, though, it's great peace of mind to know that both Jupiter and Skyline Musc will be there to help if needed!
