Fully restored Besson Cornet

Professional repairs

The workshop is over equipped for working on Trumpets, Cornets, Flugelhorns and other so called “small brass instruments”. We can do all possible repairs needed to get your instrument in excellent condition again. Simple repairs like loosening a stuck mouthpiece or stuck slides, dent work, adding triggers, etc. But also renewing a finish like silver plating of lacquer, produce and replace (vintage) parts, new valves, etc. You can see some photos of our work on the photopage whenever we have updated it. We try to keep up with this but we prioritize working on instruments over sitting behind a computer.

We also really like working on vintage quality instruments. Restoring those can be challenging but it is very rewarding. Thanks to our background with historical instruments and handcrafting historic parts we are well equipped to work on your vintage instruments.

Eye for detail

An example of a restoration project is this Selmer Piccolo. It received a lot of love here. It went through a full restoration. All dents taken out, a new slide made. Completely tidied up and then it received a new layer of silverplate, new valves and upgraded leadpipes. The leadpipes we produced especially for this model piccolo trumpet to improve general playability and intonation can be produced at any moment. More info about those can be found here.

What we find important

We try to avoid working on mass produced instruments from “the east”. Instead we prefer to work on instruments that have been produced under ethical work standards. We run a project that is called “Quality for Kids”. This is a project in which we restore quality instruments to offer students an alternative for instruments made in China, India etc. The Q4K instruments are usually beautiful instruments for students and (semi) professionals and a much better option than a cheaply made “Chinese” products. More info about this Q4K project and occasions are available on the respective pages.
