Once in a while a mouthpiece will get dropped and the tip will chip right off. Ouch!!
This repair turned out pretty good
I was asked by a friend to build a trumpet from a valve casing, lead pipe, and bell. Sent the valve casing down to Anderson Plating in the States, and they did a great job on the valve job.
Making all the slide parts, and removable bell was quite a bit of work. This horn will have 3 bells when complete.
Soon I will be doing the finish on it. Will post when done.
