Hi,

My friend has Conn 26M, but the Bb key guard is missing.
It is a wire type key guard. Please see the photo.
Is it possible for a repair tech to make it ?

Thank you very much in advance.

Yes I've made 'em in the past--and I'm sure most of the 'big hitters' (techs!) on here have done the same. Thing is we are all a long way from Japan! OTOH There's got to be someone out there who can do it maybe Mr Yamaha or Mr Yanagasawa??

If you can source the correct diameter brass rod, then it's a case of annealing, bending and cutting the pieces to the correct shape to fit and silver soldering them all together - and better still if there's an original one to copy it from. Some parts will also need turning, but it's nothing a competent tech or metalworker can't manage.

Bopity and Chris,

Thank you very much for the information.
My friend will be glad to know that it is possible to make the key guard.
As he lives in the local area where there is no good techs, I will search around in Tokyo area.

Let me thank you again.
