Restauration work

Philosophy

Restoring historical horn/brass instruments and other objects requires the combination of a multitude of manufacturing techniques, construction methods and mechanical systems. I believe that these all bring up ethical questions about the work done on the instruments. I like to research the concepts and building styles of the original manufacturers and incorporate them into my work to best conserve the initial historical baggage an instrument carries through times. I also document my work process as closely as possible to show the client every step their instrument or object goes through so they are always aware of the journey it is making on the path to being restored. When possible I source materials that correspond to the ones used originally and I personally test all the components for the way they corrode. To stay faithful to old methods of manufacturing I almost exclusively use tools that were already used in the time the instruments were built.
