    Yes, I admit, it's hidden in some of these million of control panel applets:

    It appears confusion is arising again.

    It is not my inference that any person with a mechanical background can repair a musical instrument, it is my inference that any person with a mechanical background and a passion to do the job can and will do well without needing to do a course.

    It is not my inference that a person with no mechanical background will not be able to repair a musical instrument, any person with a passion and desire will do well, without a background in mechanics of some form, a person will likely benefit from a well structured course or mentor ship.

    I do stand by my statement that IMO the mechanical demand and skill needed compared to other trades is not high.

    I come to this statement because I am a qualified jet engine mechanic, I am a qualified car mechanic, I am a qualified transmission specialist, i am a qualified aircraft mechanic, I am a qualified machinist, i have rebuilt turbo chargers, supercharges etc, musical instruments are very simplistic in a mechanical sense.

    For some reason not all my posts are being displayed as well Pete

    Yes, I agree .. a car engine is far more complex than a musical instrument. Well except maybe a bassoon LOL. Anyways instruments are simplistic compared to an aircraft engine.

    We all strive to improve our capabilities and that is the important part of instrument repair. NAPBIRT, one of the bylaws (or whatever they call it) is to share our knowledge to other ppl when asked or given the opportunity to.

    You would be surprised just how easy a bassoon is Steve, it's easier than a clarinet, and they actually play better with some leaks.

    The fear with most is the lack of exposure to a specific instrument, the unknown

    IMO the hardest instrument to repair well is a flute. Any leaks and it won't play, pads not set properly and it won't play with light finger pressure. A flute is the real test
