Trumpet Repair at BrassWindFix

This Taylor “Supergold” Trumpet was recently brought into the workshop at BrassWindFix for trumpet repair.  The tuning slide on this particular trumpet was stuck firmly.  The client tried to release the stuck slide by tying something to the bow and forcibly pulling which resulted in the brass splitting, twisting and bending out of shape.

If you have a stuck slide we would advise you not to try and release it yourself.  You will need to take the instrument to a qualified and an experienced brass instrument repairer.  BrassWindFix is a specialist woodwind and brass repairer based in Wrington, just outside of Bristol, and we have the specialist tools and knowledge required  to release the slide without causing further damage.  By forcibly pulling at the slide you could cause more damage to your instrument which will result in more work required to bring your instrument back to a playable condition, therefore resulting in a more expensive repair needed.

Justin from BrassWindFix freed the tuning slide and replaced the bow.  Having replaced the bow, the slide needed to be re-lacquered so it was sent to our preferred lacquering specialist.  Upon return Justin reassembled the instrument and you’ll see from the images below that it looks as good as new!

Have an instrument in need of service or repair?  Get in contact: 01934 861226 or email repairs@brasswindfix.co.uk

School Holidays are approaching!

2013-07-12 10.00.38Well BrassWindFix can’t quite believe where the first few months of 2015 have gone! Looking through the diary it’s only a matter of weeks and the schools will be breaking up for summer holidays and we have a full diary with lots of instrument repairs booked in.

BrassWindFix run a diary system for servicing work and we are now taking appointments for mid July to service brass and woodwind instruments. If you plan on going away in July/August then it would be an ideal time to book your woodwind or brass instrument in for a little tlc with BrassWindFix!

Please try not to leave making your appointment until the last minute as we can’t promise we will have any appointments for the time/dates that you require – as we are now booking appointments in the diary some two months ahead – give us a call as soon as you can to book your instrument in the diary for an instrument service!

Emergency woodwind or brass repair needed? Don’t panic – give Justin a call on our new workshop number 01934 861226 and explain the situation and what the problem is – we always endeavour to deal with emergency repairs as soon as possible. Depending on the work needed, we will either be able to repair it straight away or book it in on one of our emergency diary dates!
