    FLORIDA: Repair shops in Florida

    "Brass & Reed" in Daytona Beach, FL.

    Billy Birthrong is the brass technician there and does excellent work. He's the guy that Gail Robertson took her horn to when she lived and worked in the Orlando area.

    I took my Yamaha 641 there several years ago in spite of it being a 3 hour drive from West Palm Beach, FL. Billy set up an appointment for me so that the acid bath, valve-port alignment, and a small dent removal could be done in that one day. It was Billy who showed me those neat brushes and snakes available from H.W. Products Inc. which he uses along with an acid bath to clean the horn.

    For Southeast Florida area I'd like to recommend: "All County Music". It's located in Tamarac, FL near Ft. Lauderdale.
    I've been taking my M5050 to All County Music for the past six years. They use an ultrasonic cleaner rather than acid flush to clean the insides of instruments. Mark is the shop foreman who works on my good friend's tuba(s) and Stefan is the guy who works on my horn. Both do very fine work. Fred Dart took his Besson N.S. there many years ago to get some damage to the bell repaired and they did a great job.
