I searched but didn't see this question.
I just purchased a used silver Bach TR300 for my son to start 6th grade band with. It has a few minor defects. One of which is the weld on the bracket nearest the mouthpiece is broken. I wanted to get some opinions on what I should do. The way I see it I could just leave it as it is. Or I could try a few drops of super glue or epoxy. Or I could take it to a repair shop. I would like the trumpet to last my son until I am convinced he is serious and old enough to use my strad.
