    Hi Bruce,

    If you want anything done such as dent repair, general maintenance or even custom touches or valve alignments then Robert at FrankenHorn in Edmonton is your man. I am not sure whether or not he does re-lacquering. I am pretty sure he doesn't do any plating either.

    Down East, it seems that Ron Partch in Toronto or the Sparx mouthpiece designer at Long and McQuade are often mentionned.

    Cheers,

    Brian

    I tried to Email Mr Parch and the message returned as undeliverable.
    Is there any valid address?

    I don't know about his email.
    He moved to a new location in Toronto about a year ago, and I don't know where that is anymore. I can ask around for his number if you want. I need it too because I plan on asking if I can spend a day watching him work.

    Robert at Frankenhorn is the go to guy. Robert has done some amazing work for me. He doesn't do relaquering, I do believe he can silver or gold plate small items eg. mouthpieces.
    Roberts work on brass is top notch, he is also staring to build a solid rep for woodwinds as well.
