    I need to have my Calicchio worked on. I have some damage on the bell and second valve slide. I don't really trust the local shop, so I was wondering where a good place to get some repairs done is.

    I was thinking of sending it off to the BrassBow, and also get the valves aligned. Anyone's advice would be helpful.

    Cambrass in L.A. would be excellent. Right next to Bob Reeves.

    Have Charlie Melk of Charlie's Brass Works in Milwaukee, Wisconsin do your work. He is a phenomenal repair/custom work person. I can't say enough good things about him. Get on the GR website for more info about Charlie; he does some work for GR now.

    Charlie has always been very fair and honest with me, and my horns come back from him better than new. He is a master craftsman.

    Hey Brian,

    Sorry we didn't connect while you were in town.... someday :)

    Nich Dyson just had his Calicchio worked on by Rich Ita. PM me and I can get you Nich's email address if you want to talk to him about what Rich did to his horn.
