Brace separation.jpgHey all, so like normal, one of my trumpets (King 601) has a brace in between the leadpipe and the bell flare (very high up, close to where the tubing exits the first valve). The brace has separated from the bell flare. They are no longer 'fused' together by whatever process originally bonded them.
Horn plays fine--but there is a slight movement that you can barely feel. As this is my marching horn, it needs to be rather robust.
Can I just send it in to the shop and have them 'rebond' (or whatever the term is) the brace and the flare back together? What kind of a price tag should a job like that have?
Sorry about the terrible picture. Camera quality not excellent.
