Yes it is working.
Turned out quite nicely. You should feel proud to have restored a fine instrument rather than scrapping it. :)

Thanks everyone for those great comments. Was not easy to pull this, but thanks to drmusicpr.com, this is the result of a lot of patience,phone calls,searching for the right parts...etc and what the Spanish guy saying is,how reliable is the rhino ligature,how easy is to hit those high and lower notes,better response,intonation..etc and all that for a reasonable price, you will get incredible results.
The horn plays incredible,awesome, only how a Mark VI can do. Just to know what it was and what it is now, I am just :yikes!: . Now I get the "Mark VI thing" Once again..Thanks

Very difficult job, resoldering all the posts and ribs. Just replacing all the springs at one time is monumental. It's very difficult to balance the tension and get the factory feel. I like it that he didn't try to buff a high polish onto the horn or remove any scars. At lrast now the horn has a chance to be great.

Beautiful. Almost brings a tear to the eye; from the ashes, a MKVI was reborn.
