Just gotta say, he has done a really top-notch job on a pair of challenging repairs/alts which my usual go-to guys couldn’t quite pull off.

First was adding a Front F key to an Italian curvy soprano (he did it by altering a clarinet key) and NOT make it look like an after-factory alt, and the second was doing a really, really NICE repair on a twisted and dented up upper Baritone crook which most techs would have given up to the ghost.

These were not run-of-the mill things. It takes someone with real craft and skill to have successfully pulled these off.

I just think he deserved some Kudos here.
