Good sax repair tech in Southeastern Indiana

Hello all, not too long ago I became the new owner of a 1954 Selmer Mark VI alto. It sounds great and doesn't play too bad but it's on original pads and a lot of the cork on it is either gone or compressed so i've been looking into getting it sent out to be repadded/overhauled. Does anyone have suggestions on good repair techs in south-east Indiana? Also, what would be a fair price for a repad? Paiges Music out of Indianapolis quoted $700 for a repad/partial overhaul. Any help would be appreciated.

One place i've been looking into was Brents Bench in Lafayette. It's a little out of the way but I might be up there next month. He also quoted around $700 for a repad over the phone. I've heard good things about him before on the forum. Is there anyone else here who can attest to his work?
