    Hi, guys!

    Is there any way to fix this broken hook?

    If not, where could I buy this piece? I only find it for trumpets and this is much bigger.

    Thanks a lot!!

    Take it to a good tech and have a new one put on.

    You could cold forge a new hook, but it is harder than heck to do. Go the tech route.

    It can be fixed, but is probably easier to replace. If I were the tech, I'd give you the option

    Definitely, no. Unless you are a professional tech.

    Thanks! Unfortunately, there are not many tech here. All of them are quite far and are very expensive. So it could cost me like 70 usd (including the trip). And the horn doesn't worth more than 100 usd, so I don't know what to do...
