MRS  -­‐  Mechanical  Restoration  System  
Bernd  Schille  answering  common  questions  
What  is  MRS?  
“MRS  is  a  new  approach  to  clarinet  overhauls.  In  this  system,  I  combine  
contemporary  repair  techniques  with  the  art  of  handmade  clarinet  making.  This  
system  is  all-­‐embracing:  this  means  that  every  aspect  of  the  instrument  is  
analysed  and  modified  to  its  best  possible  results:  technical,  optical,  acoustical,  
intonation  issues.”  
What  is  done  on  my  clarinet  with  MRS?  
“That  is  very  simple:  everything  is  done!  Before  I  start  with  the  MRS,  I  subject  the  
clarinet  to  a  meticulous  analysis.  On  the  basis  of  my  experience  as  repairer,  
clarinet  maker  and  clarinettist,  I  will  decide  then  which  specific  materials  I  will  
use  and  which  actions  I  will  undertake.  A  general  work  description  in  detail  
cannot  be  made  in  advance,  because  each  clarinet  needs  to  be  looked  at  and  
treated  individually.”  
Can  MRS  be  done  on  any  clarinet?  
“Yes.  But  I  would  recommend  it  only  on  clarinets  of  the  professional  range,  
regardless  the  age.”  
Can  I  choose  different  options  within  MRS?  
“No.  MRS  is  a  complete  concept  that  includes  all  aspects  for  optimal  result.”  
Can  I  choose  from  different  pad  styles?  
“No.  I  use  for  each  clarinet  individually  chosen  professional  pads.  This  is  
important  in  order  to  achieve  for  each  instrument  the  optimal  sound.  The  pad  
combinations  can  therefore  vary  from  clarinet  to  clarinet.”  
Can  MRS  change  the  original  sound  of  my  clarinet?  
“Absolutely  no.  It  is  not  the  goal  of  MRS  to  change  the  sound  character  of  the  
clarinet,  but  to  enhance  the  personal  qualities  of  this  particular  instrument.”  
Does  MRS  improve  the  intonation  of  my  clarinet?  
“Yes,  definitely.”  
Does  MRS  include  work  on  the  wooden  body?  
“Of  course!  All  wooden  parts  are  rebuilt  to  perfection  and  the  protection  of  the  
wood  will  be  better  than  with  new  instruments.  This  also  includes  a  special  
master  polishing  of  the  bore.”  
Is  it  possible  to  add  an  extra  key  or  modify  a  key?  
“Yes,  it  is  possible.  But  it  is  not  included  in  the  price  of  the  MRS.”  
Can  MRS  bring  back  my  clarinet  back  to  the  condition  as  when  it  was  new?  
“  Condition  of  new  is  great,  but  not  great  enough  for  MRS.  I  do  not  orientate  my  
standard  on  new  clarinets,  my  demands  are  clearly  higher.  MRS  includes  also,  if  
necessary,  a  new  silver  plating…”  

How  long  does  it  take  to  finish  MRS  on  my  clarinet?  
“Approximately  2-­‐4  weeks,  depending  if  silver  plating  is  needed.  When  placing  a  
MRS  order,  you  will  get  a  definite  date  of  finishing.  This  date  is  guaranteed!”  
What  is  the  price  of  MRS?  
“For  MRS  we  have  one  fixed  price.  For  one  Bb,  A,  C  or  Eb  clarinet  (French  
system),  no  matter  which  brand  or  age,  the  price  is  SEK  6500  inclusive  VAT.  
Export  price  without  VAT:  SEK  5200.  This  price  includes  even  free  shipment  
within  EU  with  UPS  (pick-­‐up  service  at  your  home  and  sent  back  door-­‐to-­‐door).  
For  overseas,  we  charge  for  this  shipment  service  additional  SEK  500.”  
Is  there  a  warranty  on  MRS?  
“Yes.  MRS  is  made  to  last  for  many,  many  years  and  I  give  one  year  of  warranty  
on  my  work.”  
Is  shipment  safe  to  your  workshop  in  Sweden  and  back?  
“Yes,  without  doubt.  We  are  exclusively  using  door-­‐to-­‐door  shipment  with  UPS.  
The  instrument  is  never  given  out  of  hands  of  UPS  and  you  can  track  all  way  in  
real  time.”
