Folks,
I have a basically "closet" vintage tenor that I'd like to have repadded and set up--not a full overhaul. If it doesn't need it, why should I get a full overhaul? (I'd rather save the money for my sop which DOES need a full overhaul).

This thing is pristine, and has no slop in the keywork. It's a '48 Holton 241 with the soldered tone holes, so I'm not too worried about them needing to be leveled (am I wrong here?)

This horn is sweet, and I'd like to have some new pads with oversize resos. Looking for regional recommendations for the repad and set up only.

I've seen Ernie Sola's work, and it was great. I would put him at the top of the list, intending no disrespect toward others in the area.

I don't have any experience with them, but a friend of mine suggested 'The Horn Shop' in West Hartford, CT.
