    My dad recently gave me his 70s Getzen Severinsen Eterna 900S. One of the bottom valve caps is missing. Although I'm now 55, I'm only in my second year of lessons. I want to replace this cap, but I can't seem to find anyplace on line that sells a cap for the Silver model I have. Can anyone help to get me in the right direction? Thank you in advance.

    I may have one, and you can have it if it's the right cap. I'm not completely sure, though - anyone have a closeup pic of one for me to compare mine to? It came on an old Conn 22B I own (same threads), but I've since found an original 22B cap, and this Getzen? cap is just taking up space in my parts box.

    Buck, thanks you for your quick reply. I tried the band room, and yes, they have what I need. They also have lots of other neat stuff to look at.

    Dale, thank you very much for your offer. I found what I need in the band room. Now I won't "leak" as much, ha-ha. ;-)

    Barbie.

    The problem with " air leakage" will be solved and you may find less valve oil "dripping" on you clothing. Bottom caps are good!

    Best wishes,

    Lloyd
