Regular preventive maintenance is recommended by all instrument manufacturers to achieve optimum playing condition. A poorly maintained instrument can only hamper your performance. Regular maintenance is often referred to as "annual servicing" or as "COA"(clean, oil and adjust). A qualified repair technician will keep your instrument in good operating condition (think of it as an oil & filter change for your car). Manufacturers' guidelines require service at this level once a year.
