Meet Justin Pavey

Today Justin Pavey is working on a classic old Besson Sovereign Cornet and is thoroughly enjoying the experience!  It’s nice to be able to work on old instruments that have been lovingly cared for by its owner over the years and the quality of the original workmanship of this cornet is wonderful – they certainly made them to last!   This particular Besson Cornet is the pride and joy of a regular BrassWindFix customer who performs in a brass band and this Besson Sovereign Cornet has a warm, full sound when played.

However, the original lacquer is now looking a little sorry for itself so today Justin is overhauling the cornet and preparing it ready to be silver plated.   This will mean that the cornet will be more hard wearing and will also look like a brand new instrument once finished.  Call it cosmetic surgery for brass instruments!

There has been a lot of debate over the years as to whether instruments should be lacquered, silver plated, gold plated or left as they are.  Many musicians are concerned that this process may affect the sound of the instrument slightly afterwards; making them sound slightly brighter or slightly darker.  However, if you decide to have your brass instrument re-lacquered or silver/gold plated then, as with major repairs or servicing, the instrument would need to be completely taken apart, overhauled and dents/dinks removed first.  Any work on a brass instrument could therefore essentially affect the overall sound afterwards – in Justin’s expert hands – the overall playability and sound is always for the better!

We can’t wait to see this one when it’s finished and it’s great to see someone so happy in their work!
