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.

First off, lemme just say that southeastern Indiana is absolutely beautiful and one of the most underrated parts of this whole country! I have some dear friends in Madison IN and in non-COVID years we'll usually use it as a home-base hub in between gigs in Louisville and Cincinnati.

That being said: Cincinnati is probably your best bet in that general part of the country for a good horn tech. Buddy Rogers' repair shop looks pretty legit, I'll bet they serve a lot of the Cinci Conservatory folks. A good program like that will need a good shop.
