I had two different price points for overhauls when I was teching and I didn't consider it a difference in quality but as a difference in included features and materials and time. The biggest difference was that student overhauls only received standard Kraus pads with plastic domed resonators. The pro overhaul included premium pads (Kraus lucien delux - if I remember correctly) with custom flat, domed or star/hollywod metal resonators custom fit to the toneholes.

I can only venture a guess as to why they justify their price diffence, but I've known other technicians to include chemical cleaning, 100% spring replacement, tone hole leveling, key fitting (swedging, pivot screw seating) in a pro overhaul. It's very easy to argue on both sides that they all should or don't need to be included in a basic overhaul.
