    I'm posting this in "Vintage" because I need a repair man who is familiar with vintage cornets and trumpets and can find or fabricate replacement parts. Does anyone have a recommendation for a shop in the Philly area?

    You might try "A Minor Tune Up" in Wilmington DE. Chris Cromer does great work and may be able to help you out. If you google his shop, it will pop up. It is located 5 min off I-95 so depending where in the Philly area you are it could be as close as 20 min or so away.

    I second the suggestion for Chris Cromer.

    Unfortunately, he can't do leadpipe shanks yet. But thanks for the lead! :-)

    A leadpipe shank (the removable, tunable part) for a Marceau (B&F) cornet. I have a few quotes outside the area, but I always prefer dropping in and talking with the tech in person.
