Modifications

Modifications

Sometimes a customer asks for a little adjustment or a request for a different finger hook or water key. This is something I do daily. But I also have completely rebuilt a loved instrument with more modern bracing, custom leadpipes, etc. All these changes, including ergonomic changes for people with a dissability are called modifications.

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.

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.
