French Horn Detachable Bell Modification

This is a very challenging modification that only a few technicians are capable of performing to the standard of professional musicians. We are lucky to have those technicians in our shop here. Any time a musician wants to make an irreversible change to their instrument by cutting through it, particular care has to be taken to ensure everything is done right the first time. The most difficult part of this modification is ensuring the ring is parallel with the bell rim. Even when the ring and the horn are made by the same manufacturer, the angle of the bell flare never lines up perfectly and the technician has to rely on experience and judgment to know where to solder the join to avoid skewing the cut. You can see how clean the cut is and how well it lines up on the inside of the bell. If you would like to do a similar modification to your instrument, please feel free to give us a call.
