For those who are wondering, this is what happens if you don't keep your instrument clean.
Is that on the outside working in, or the inside working out?
"Congratulations. Hang it on a wall and buy a new trumpet."
Ivan, have you ever seen it in that area before? I have not.....
I've seen it a few times - once on a NY Bach I was buying for myself. But this Holton is split through right at the braised joint out of the 1st casing. You would repair something like this on a museum piece (Josh Landress has done some), but not on a student horn.
Yikes. My old Getzen/Sevrensen has a mild case in the lead pipe--the usual place--but nothing like that. Maybe the lead pipe on this one was previously replaced?
I have seen it in the port knuckles a few times on old Yamahas.
What horn is that? You mentioned ot was a student holton?
Is that coming out of the 1st valve? How did garbage get down that far? One would think the leadpipe would be a target, and the tuning slide to a lesser extent.
It's not garbage that causes it. It is acids eating away the zinc in the alloy. These are carried by moisture.
