Most trumpets receive a ultrasonic cleaning, removal of dents, burnish out imperfections, scratch removal & valve alignment.
On most trumpets, a thorough Ultrasonic cleaning and removal of common dents takes 1½-2 hours.
Del Quadro Custom Trumpets specializing in restoration, repair, and custom trumpets built to your specifications.
On full instruments we leave the actual plating process to the pros at Anderson Silver plating but all of the prep work is done in house.
This is the whole shebang here. The end goal is an instrument that looks as close to brand new as possible.
Bracing attached the bell & mouthpipe are removed. A locking joint is created where the bell sits and is replaced with a slide.
Sometimes even good valves go bad. After years and years of shedding and gigging, trumpet valves do eventually lose their tolerance.
I use a neoprene material that never compresses over time and is resistant to wicking oils and other substances.
Ideas to customize and personalize your instrument are virtually limitless. Contact me for more information.
Ideas to Customize & Personalize your Instrument are Limitless.
