I am simply asking this question at this point. I do not want any inference that i am besmirching a mans integrity. I have a high value vintage trumpet at Green's buffing. I must ask if anyone here has encountered any issues in the last 6 months with Tom and the service. I am trying to ascertain if what i am experiencing is an anomaly or if it appears to be more than that. I appreciate any responses. I will divulge my ongoing experience only if it helps others to understand the issue. Thank you for your input.
