That's not so bad. I've seen worse. Easily saved. Should be a relatively quick and straight-forward fix for a tech with experience and the proper tools. Best of luck in your choice of techs. Decisions...decisions.. :?
Depending on how "stuck" it is, (the end of the screw where it broke is going to be bent/damaged slightly) there are a variety of tools and methods to remove it. That's the easy part of this repair for a tech with appropriate tools to remove it w/o doing damage to the surrounding screwblock or internal threads.rleitch said:Great news--I can't wait to play this sax. Are the tightening screws hard to replace? The original got broken off inside the...tightener thingy (sorry for the hyper-technological language).
Might that be Mariuz Kowalski in Halifax Nova Scotia??rleitch said:I've decided to be wise and err on the side of patience: the sax is going to Mariuz (the real deal guy)!
