    Getzen Severinsen 2nd valve slide missing nib recommendations

    I finally got the Severinsen that I had been after for my son , and am very, very pleased with it. Only one item that requires attention, and that is the second valve slide. One, it is stuck, so I will take it to the shop to see what they can do with it. Secondly, as you can see from the attached picture the 'nib' or 'nub' or whatever you want to call it is missing. I don't want to slap any old silver plated replacement on there, so can anyone recommend a source for the correct part, be it a 'nib' or the while slide? Thanks!!!!

    When you take it to the shop they will be able to advise on what they can do, you may be surprised at how far they can go to make this look original.

    Getzen still makes eterna models so an exact or close replacement part may be available.

    I see many ways of fixing this issue.

    DIY method,

    Get a small brass block and cut in to a small circle, then silver plate if preferred and solder it on.

    Buy & Take

    Buy this King slide pull knobs, King Slide Pull Knobs, Set of 2, Fits Trumpet, Cornet, Tuba and Other Brands! | eBay

    Ask a tech to solder it on or ask him to silver plate it as well to match it in.
    Attention:

    Your son is a lucky kid. That trumpet will do everything he ever needs it to do, and then some. Congratulations on getting one. Welcome to the wonderful world of Getzen! Best wishes.
