    Hello,

    I have been searching for replacement springs, for my kuhlohorn, and have not been able to find a source. I finally took the horn, to a repair shop and, they are also finding it difficult, to find the clockwork type springs, for the horn. If anyone knows of a place to buy these, I would greatly appreciate the information. I was able to get the horn working, using the springs from an old rotary valve trumpet wall ornament, but those springs only lasted about one month.

    Thank you :play:

    Anybody that does french horn repairs will have some suitable springs.

    Welcome to TM, mrfixit08! Clockwork springs are tough to replace. I had mine on an old Schediwy replaced by Norbert Boepple in Germany: Willkommen bei Musik Böpple He respects old instruments, and will give you a beer if you come to visit.
