Eulipion Woodwinds

Welcome to Eulipion Woodwinds, home of Bob Drinkwater woodwind repair.  For many decades Bob Drinkwater has been a mainstay in the Boston Metro area providing skilled full service woodwind repair to all walks of musicians from internationally touring professionals to local schools and bands.

In the 1970s Bob spent 10 years at Haynes Flutes developing all aspects of the most demanding detailed woodwind manufacturing and setup. He started off drop forging and making keys, then moved on to making foot joints, soldering, finishing and full assembly.  He brought this especially precise approach to his work later on Clarinets and Saxophones as well.

From there he opened up his own shop upstairs at Carl Fischer Music in Boston with the now infamous “To Pad Or Not TO Pad” entry gate- (those who know, know) and the thousands of signed photos of every known jazz and soul musician covering the walls. He cared for instruments for all the working pros and musicians coming through town on tours as well as school age children and entire schools.  When Carl Fischer closed he moved down to Steinway and had a shop there until relocating to Stoneham where he had shop for years as well.

This is where you want to go for small repairs on the run for working musicians, school setups for students, full overhauls, damage repairs and half pad jobs as well. Service offered on Clarinet, Saxophone, Flute, Kazoo (those are the most expensive) Piccolo, you name it, he will tussle with it and get it going.  He also usually has a stable of second hand, student to pro and vintage to modern horns for sale and also offers consignment sales.

Otto Link Straight Sig Late FL 5 Original

Here we have a very very nice original (100% authentic) late Florida Otto Link ‘straight signature’ tenor piece at it’s original 5 facing, unaltered and a wonderful player as well.  Body is quite clean, facing curve untouched, tip in good shape, original long clamshell baffle (hand finished) and original table milling obvious and present.  They don’t get much nicer than this.  Most of the examples we see for sale out there now are fakes, this is real and these are hard to find.  Generally these are a bit more powerful than slant sig but mostly the same mouthpiece, probably the best of the hard rubber Florida models for projection.
