    Hello I'm pretty interested on restoring old trumpets or soldering and I was wondering if anyone had any good references on finding more information about it. I watched some of the stuff from the Harrelson Trumpet guy about restoring an old Bach but would still like to see more. :play:

    I wouldn't use the Harrelson videos as a guide to soldering. He uses pretty aggressive heat in those videos, and if you aren't refinishing the horn entirely (plating, lacquer etc) you will end up with a burned horn.
