  • Exquisite abalone caps $249.00  for up to 5 valve caps

 

  • Sanding down levers then buffing the to a mirror finish $100.00

 

  • Dent removal. This is one of my favorite jobs to do, since we have not only the highest grade tools, but also the pleasure to just see the dent removed from some extreme places.  This makes dent removal one of the most satisfying experiences! The charge for dent removal varies greatly depending of the dent location. Very accessible dents have naturaly a lower rate 🙂

 

  • Detachable bell conversion. We are not only experts in cutting bells, but we also enjoy it. While we may not be the cheapest deal around, what you get is the highest possible quality; plus the return fedex shipping is on us (a $60-80 value, available only in continental US). Our detachable bell conversion is available only with appointment. Please call in advance to reserve your time. Thank you

 

If you dream it, we can probably make it! We am very passionate about horns and pretty inventive and handy; so, if you have an idea that you would like to be tested, more than likely we can accommodate you.

 

We can de-lacquer both nitrocellulose and epoxy. Here are the two different types of lacquer used on horns:

– Epoxy based lacquer that has been baked. Very hard to remove, requires multiple passes.
