No, although a jeweler could solder it, it needs attention to return it to function. An alternative would be to get a replacement part.Part of Buescher Aristocrat tenor Octave mechanism. I know nothing about torch soldering and it looks difficult. Should I take it to a jeweler?
Hah! Janet does good work. Even though I lived in Santa Fe, she was the person I most trusted in that area to work on my horns. If you get that key from Saxoclese, I would still take the horn to Janet to make sure that it fits and functions properly.Yes I did try to contact Second Wind Repair first but couldn't wait for a response. All is well now. I have an appointment but she will be out of town so I have to wait a few weeks. Learning patience now.
