    Nothing says "precision" like free-handing some valve case honing...

    At least they seem to be using heat to set their joints

    I see they found a constructive use for a clarinet bell.

    "Is Mr. Ali available?
    No, he's busy turning in his grave at the quality"

    They seem to crank out most of these instruments...props to them for making the newest pocket trumpets look decent but not much beyond that

    That's how you hone a casing...its the same in the Monette videos.

    I remember an Indian trumpet with a 1st slide thumb hook. It was soldering like 3cm apart from the valve casing.
    So I said to myself, Well there goes the thumb hook! Bye bye!
