Some players like a bend in their mouthpiece. Our fee for this is $30 and we can bend most pieces up to 15 degrees.
**Please note that there is a risk of cracking when bending already plated backbores. We prefer bending new backbores, and are not liable for any damage to backbores bent after plating.**
Refinishing and Replating
Warburton guarantees our silver plating for the life of the mouthpiece. If your Warburton mouthpiece has plating wear, we will replate in silver at no cost except for shipping fees.
Gold plating has a limited warranty and can be evaluated on an individual basis.
