Tanya has just restored my 40 year old Fox Renard to a state which I have never previously enjoyed! She shows obvious love for her craft and our instruments. Communication throughout was first class and I cannot recommend her highly enough. I'm actually excited to begin practising on what feels like a new instrument

Fox Renard
I can highly recommend Tanya and her amazing service. My Heckel Bassoon came back shinier, fresher, and sounding amazing. It really hadn't looked that good for over 4 years. Just like instrument practice, instrument maintenance is a key factor in maintaining a high standard of performance. Very impressed indeed.

I'd been hearing great things about her more advanced, precision work from my colleagues in QSO, and there were a few niggling issues I finally wanted resolved. She spent the majority of time on my long and boot joints, and quite frankly the bassoon has never sealed better. The response and attack of the low notes is perfect. Wonderfully skilled work and she even finished a day early! I will be back for sure.

I am so happy that we sent our orchestra's contra to Tanya for a service. Tanya was able to resolve these issues and the contra is now playing better than it has done in many years. It is very exciting to have such a knowledgeable bassoon/contrabassoon servicer at our fingertips here in Brisbane. We will definitely be using Tanya in the future and I highly recommend her to other musicians.

Heckel Contra bassoon
During a general rehearsal, my bassoon stopped working. Normally I can work out small issues for myself, but I couldn't work out his particular problem. It was a stressful situation because I had a concert that night. I took my bassoon to Tanya, and she worked out the problem in no time. I was incredibly relieved. There were no problems in the concert, and I've had no issues like that one since.

If you want your bassoon to play better than it ever has, take it to Tanya Campbell. Her work doesn’t stop at standard pad and cork replacement, Tanya can provide highly complex keywork modifications and additions, as on my contrabassoon, and pinpointing intonation/response issues which on a bassoon can be difficult to diagnose, let alone fix.

I am so relieved and happy to have a repairer in Australia who is so organised, consults on all decisions that are to be made and carries out such quality work. It is not often that you truly notice a marked improvement in your instrument when it returns from the repairer.
