    Parts Help

    First post. welcomes and such.
    Ok, I have a Besson London 1000 Bb Trumpet that I need to find some parts for this particular model. I need to find the Waterkey spring for the 3rd valve slide, and the pivot screw for the same slide. Anyone know where I would go to find these parts for a reasonable price?

    https://www.windcraft.co.uk/index.html has a lot of parts, but all I see for the 1000 are valve guides. They do list a number of sizes of water key springs. Might be a place to send a note to.

    Re: Parts Help

    Seems like the springs they list arent the right kind. Those are the ones like thats in the Conn director series. The ones I need have a loop that fits around the pivot point of the waterkey and comes back around behind the waterkey for spring force.
    Ill try to get a picture later.

    Here are some that the Bandroom carries, is that the style? Photos would help for those who are conceptually challenged, like me.

    Re: Parts Help

    If you are planning to replace the water key spring your self, you'll need a special tool to hold it with. Without it you won't have a chance of getting it on. I know I've tried. Try ferree's web site.

    Re: Parts Help

    I have the tool to reset the spring.
    The ones listed above at the bandroom are almost what I need. The prongs there face out, and the ones I need face in.

    Re: Parts Help

    Yamaha water key springs face in. Really it doesn't matter. Most generic springs come long and you just cut them to the size after you install them. Get a generic and bend/cut it to length.
