Refurbishment & Restoration

RJR offer a fully bespoke Refurbishment and Restoration service.  We will tailor our offering to your exact requirements, whether its a simple set of new heads and a tune up, to a complete strip down, deep clean of shells and chrome parts, and rebuild. 

We can replace your heads with the heads of your choice (we can provide Remo, Evans, Code or Aquarian), as well as replacing any missing parts, fitting new snare wires or straps, new throws or butts, or just replacement tension rods. 

Our prices for Refurbishment work start at £50, but will be tailored to include all works you require, and will not include anything that is not necessary, so you get exactly the service your kit needs.
