All to match your creativity
Most common modifications are adding a trigger, swap bad amado waterkeys (getzen style) with their modern equivalents and leadpipe replacements. But I love doing the more advanced jobs too. Replacing the complete valve block or bell, a miniball conversion on antique rotary instrument, adding a quarter tone valve, or refinishing an instrument is very rewarding work.
Some examples of part making process and modifications on video:
- A conversion from Bb to C Of an romantic rotary trumpet
- Making a improved leadpipe for a Schagerl Horsdorf trumpet
- Engraving a Twister Rotary Valve cap with the flower of life.
- Producing a little radius brace for a Twister trumpet
Almost anything is possible. If you have an idea of what you like to achieve, I am very likely able to make that possible. If you have specific questions about modifications please contact me with your enquiry.
