    I noticed in looking at the Getzen bell a little closer that there is a small crack, about an eight of an inch that is all the way through. What would your advice be on this?

    Oh, and the Howie and Barbara quips are pretty funny. See, trumpet guys can have a sense of humor, too.

    I would consult with Charlie Melk in WI, or Mark Metzler in Elkhart, IN to get an opinion on best way to repair, and an estimate as to cost........

    Oh man! That's a different kettle of fish. Sorry to hear that. You might get away with a wee spot of solder, but more than likely it'll need a patch, or if that's unacceptable, a new bell. I'd be more inclined to go with robrtx's advice on that one.
