I have had the trim kit now for just over a day. Did not notice the alignment issue until doing some visual checking. It seemed the best course of action was to get some feedback from those of you with more experience in this area before contacting the people at Harrelson. I'm a first year trumpet player, so a bit of caution is in order whenever anything is undertaken. They (Paul - Harrelson Trumpets) have ALWAYS been a pleasure to work with! And the quality of their kits is nothing less than world class. It was certainly worth the wait!
