They do indeed, I just am at the age stage where I get to reward myself, and ever since seeing branford play his black nickel Guardala, I have loved this look. The options are mostly Keilwerth (which I already have), Selmer or Yamaha in the black, but I also have Yani alto and sop so wanted to complete the set......thanks for all the info.Counterfeits aside, it is a costly service. Yani has some great finishes though.
this I was told several times... once upon a time......... Horns were routinely lacquered .
Until the '80 it would cost very little. Apparently there was a Mr. Carrubba in NYC who did, delacquer, buff and re lacquer for $14,50 for lots of repairers there! They brought the horn dismounted, no springs, and it was done in little time.
