    Hi,

    I posted on a student Bb Artley Prelude I have which apparently isn't worth much so I guess I'll hang onto it.

    Unfortunately, one joint needs to be recorked. I'm in the Seattle area. I looked around for a place to do it, but the 3 places I contacted seem very high end... they each wanted to do an 'overhaul' rather than just doing that one quick fix. I know they have my best interest at heart, but I really just want -that- one thing fixed so I can mess around with it if I want.

    In short: can someone recommend a place in the Seattle area that caters to poor people who only want a make do fix? (LOL)

    TIA,

    ---JC

    PS: And no, I don't want painters tape. :D I just want a guy who isn't trying to upsell me on a repair that's more than the price of the instrument. No disrespect to repair people at all!

    Thanks very much. If you ever need bass or guitar for your big band projects, please let me know. I live for that stuff.

    Best,

    Yeah, I forgot to tell you to mention that you got the recommendation from the guy that set up his website ten years ago. ;)

    Apparently -everyone- in Seattle do websites for someone. In any event, a certain amount of shilling is to be expected on fora such as this. :D

    My only issue with Matt is that his place is way the hell up and gone (at least for me). Very nice guy, though.

    Best,
