Richard Mattingly

Restoring and customising saxophones, clarinets and flutes

Biography

I work on instruments to make them play as well as they can and personalise them to suit the player's style. So a player can concentrate more on music and less on technique.

Richard works with musicians and their saxophones, clarinets and flutes, developing the playability and tone colour of each individual instrument. This can involve anything from customising a new instrument for a particular musician, to the complete restoration of a classic instrument.
