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.George J. (Portland, OR)
I received the screw yesterday. Perfect fit, I now have a functioning F key again! Thanks so much!Steve H. (Absecon, NJ)
The bari is playing great. The octave key fix seems to be working fine so having them open and close together seems like the right behavior. The lower register is much better now.Carlos P. (Boca Raton, FL)
