Here’s one that really makes you wonder. A guy comes into the shop with his girlfirend’s horn. Seems she hasn’t played in a while and wants to get back at it. So I open the case to find…a chemistry experiment. I’ve never seen anything like it. This is a nickel Holton, covered in green crystalized funk. I might need a forensic specialist for this one!
I haven’t heard from the owner about the next steps, so I still have the horn. Stay tuned!
