    some years ago, I broke the mouthpiece-receiver of my Benge pocket-trumpet

    a local "luthier" put "something" new on the horn,
    sadly,
    only after some time , I realized that the piece was completely useless...

    I dind´t use the horn for more than 10 years,
    but now I want it back !!

    anybody knows, where to buy a Benge (o similar) mouthpiece-receiver ¿?¿

    attention : I am not living in NY (but in the deep south of Spain)

    here, the few repairmen will tell me : no problem ; I have a piece...
    (I dont´t want just loose money in useless "repairs")

    ¿somebody knows, where to buy mouth-piece-receivers ?

    the professionals here can solder, and they are artists...
    but .......¿?¿?
    (I would like to get the original piece..)


    Thanks

    I wonder if the stomvi part would work? Their pocket is very similar in design to the being, and would be easier for you to get.

    thank´s flugelgirl (what a nice name)

    a Stomvi piece could be a solution
    (and Valencia is not so far from Málaga)

    thanks John N. Nieuwguyski,

    great link

    the Kanstul 905 pocket trumpet really looks very similar to my Benge pocket (from the early eighties, serial # 37601)

    I´ll send them a mail, asking if the piece is really compatible
    (the receiver I have now , fits well with the lead-pipe, but it´s to open, a normal mouthpiece just gets to much inside..)

    great this service from Kanstul, selling all individual parts..
    (I am impressed)
    most companies only offer springs,valve oil, heavy caps for heavy prieces...

    Hola,

    I have a new Benge receiver from a regular Benge #x+ leadpipe if you would like. Send me your address and I'll get it to you. I think it should be the right part.

    hola Brian,
    I just got the post;
    the mouthpiece receiver looks just like the right one for my pocket tp
    ¡¡¡ muchas gracias !!!
    It seams, this piece travelled severall times around the world....

    (this Benge receivers are so long and delicate, completely different from others I know)

    in a few days I´ll bring it to a workshop and have it fixed...

    saludos from Spain
