Re: relaquer selmer Reference alto sax
I, too, have worked in shops where refinishing was done. I don't want to enter on either side of the arguement; it must be understood that ANYTHING you do to the horn will change the sound, even repadding, as someone said in an earlier post. And as Matt says, if a new horn is free, that might be hard to pass up. If the offer is only to refinish it, and it is to be done in Paris, by the time it gets there, gets done, and gets back to you, you will have forgotten what it originally played like. And please don't take this as a put-down of you. It won't get done overnight.
