I just purchased a Millereau Flugelhorn. From what I can find it is a French company and was made in the early 1900's. The company was later bought by Selmer. Does anyone have any experience with these or other vintage flugelhorns from this era? It needs to be restored (some soldering, valve redo), but should be fun to play once completed. I'm a sucker for vintage instruments. Here is a photo of an identical one on hornucopia.
If you can recommend anyone that does good restoration without breaking the bank I'd appreciate some recommendations. (I know quality and reasonable price don't always go hand in hand but in this case I don't need a perfect restoration like I would on a vintage Martin or Olds, but an overhaul and repair job to make it playable) I live in northern Ohio Thanks!
