Lyricon Repairs by Bill Bernardi
Patchman Music repairs wind controllers but generally we do not repair the Lyricon. For Lyricon repairs we endorse and highly recommend our good friend and Lyricon inventor Bill Bernardi.
The Lyricon has many proprietary parts including the breath transducer which require parts that are only available from Bill Bernardi himself. So if you are looking to have a Lyricon repaired, we strongly recommend going right to the source and having Bill Bernardi repair it.
This page has been created and maintained in cooperation with Bill Bernardi as a courtesy to him and to our customers who wish to have their Lyricons serviced.
Please Note: This page has been posted as a courtesy to our good friend Bill Bernardi. Patchman Music is not affiliated with Bill Bernardi's repair business nor is Patchman Music involved in any transactions customers might have with Bill Bernardi. If you wish to have your Lyricon fixed please read the instructions on this page and please contact Bill directly- NOT Patchman Music.
Common Problems with the Lyricon
If your Lyricon has not been played for a while there is a very good chance the breath transducer has dried up and stiffened. Signs that this has happened are either little or no response from your breath or a constant sound that cannot be turned off. In this case you need to contact Bill Bernardi for a repair as it is likely the membrane in the breath sensor needs to be replaced (as well as possibly additional work). This job is best done only by Bill himself as the material used is proprietary and near impossible to find. Only Bill can do it right!
Where can I get my Lyricon repaired?
As mentioned above, Bill Bernardi is really the only person who can do a Lyricon repair properly. Bill has recently revamped his repair shop and is now once again offering to do repairs on all Lyricon models.
Can my Lyricon be Modified and Improved?
Yes! Bill Bernardi offers optional upgrades and modifications that can offer better performance. Contact him for details and prices.
What does a Repair Cost?
Repair charges can vary depending on the condition of the horn and what the customer wants done. Repairs generally are in the range of $650 (US) and up per instrument.
How do I go about getting my Lyricon Repaired?
Do not contact Patchman Music. To get your Lyricon repaired, you must contact Bill Bernardi directly via email (only) at LyriconOne@aol.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Patchman Music will NOT release Bill Bernardi's phone number or address- so please don't ask us.
