    Can anyone offer advice on restoring a Reynolds cornet, circa 1930-1938? I'm hesitant to take it to an everyday repair shop, but I'm also unfamiliar with repair shops that specialize in vintage repairs. Any suggestions ?

    thx

    There are a number of different places that specialize in this sort of thing. First Class Brass in the UK (run by Leigh), Charlie Melk, Kanstul, and several others I can't remember all do fantastic work restoring old horns to like new condition.

    What model of cornet is it?? And what shape is it in??

    I have several Reynolds cornets that are good playing horns. ANd a couple of others that are strictly parts dogs. If you need any parts I might have one. PM to me if you do.
