My main focus is on vintage, less known and less appreciated cornets and trumpets as well as student models. Full restores are offered on occasion, I specialize in refurbishing and collecting original condition horns. UpYourBrass shop policies are single tolerance, all listed horns get the same treatment unless otherwise mentioned in the listing. All of my instruments are serviced and photographed by me so no back of the house guys telling the front of the house it's ready.
UpYourBrass does not just oil valves and grease slides to get horns into PLAY READY condition, all horns from start to finish receive. 3 stage Tesch green clean of horn and all components (Emerald Degreaser, Power Brass Acid, Classic Brass Alkaline). Initial inspection to determine viability to become an instrument again or to be put in my parts pile, I don't refinish unworthy horns. Hot water rinsed, and body and slides thoroughly brushed. Upper and Lower valve chambers polished.
Threads cleaned on horn and top and bottom caps. Small parts hand detailed and/or run through the tumbler and polished. Horn body trued as needed, hand torqued at all solder joints for strength, braces checked and repaired as needed.
Bell tail, taper, flair and leadpipe dents and major dings removed. Bell's and lead-pipes are removed for extensive work as needed. Valve chamber area knuckle dings removed. Female slide receivers dry scrubbed with firm brush, male slides polished, gap between valve body and threads cleaned.
Inside bell flair brushed finished at bell seam. Valves hand lapped from top and bottom when accessible. Valve chambers and valves checked for proper fit during lapping, trued when needed. Valve cap threads checked for fit, out of round threaded areas are trued and threads are chased. Horn body is then hot water triple rinsed and scrubbed.Slides dry scrubbed with firm brush, polished and checked for proper fit and feel. Slides hot water rinsed, accessible dents and dings removed. Valves aligned, felts pads, springs and water-key corks replaced as needed. Horn and valves assembled, all interfaces and parts lubed. Al Cass Fast used on ALL valves. Play tested and checked for valve action, slide fit, leaks, and overall playability. Original mouthpieces are usually included, checked for receiver fit, cleaned and polished.
Horn is then wiped clean and or hand polished. Cases opened, aired out, disinfected vacuumed, sometimes minor repairs are completed (Note, some old cases will have residual smell). Horns are photographed on the UpYourBrass Poker Table, disassembled and checked for proper fit again. Refurbished horns should be cleaned in a warm water bath with mild detergent after your first play session, don't forget, to never mix oils, they are all different and mixing them can lead to dirt buildup and sluggish valves.
I highly recommend the use of spitballs regularly to clean any residual debris from your instrument, remember vintage horns have sometimes been sitting for a very long time, you as an instrument owner should clean your instrument regularly. If you have any questions or problems with your instrument, please contact me first for any issues or needing to return an instrument for not as described. I will offer full consideration for any parts or horns that are listed improperly. The shipper will not offer any compensation unless these steps are taken.
