Good sax repair tech in Southeastern Indiana

Hello all, not too long ago I became the new owner of a 1954 Selmer Mark VI alto. It sounds great and doesn't play too bad but it's on original pads and a lot of the cork on it is either gone or compressed so i've been looking into getting it sent out to be repadded/overhauled. Does anyone have suggestions on good repair techs in south-east Indiana? Also, what would be a fair price for a repad? Paiges Music out of Indianapolis quoted $700 for a repad/partial overhaul. Any help would be appreciated.

Paiges Music appears to have a large repair department with several experienced woodwind techs to choose from. If the $700 they quoted for a repad/partial overhaul means a total repad in addition to a partial "mechanical overhaul" which addresses key fitting, straightening, etc. that seems to be a fair price. You could ask in an email exactly what that includes to be sure.
