Olds Recording Trumpet - 3rd Valve Replacement?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!  I am looking for a missing part for my father's trumpet, and it's proving difficult to find.  I should note that I know nothing about trumpets.

It's an Olds Recording trumpet from 1941-42. The trumpet is missing its third valve slide (the entire removable section).  I'm told by the local shop here that the bracing is a sheet style, rather than barrel/post (again, I have no idea what that means).

If you know of where I can find this piece, please let me know.  I appreciate any help, thanks!

Brian

I see you have asked this question on the trumpet board forum. If you haven't already, ask on the trumpetherald forum. There are many trumpet techs and professionals on that site. 

Have you talked to more than one brass repairman? Surprised that a replacement part could not be fabricated.

Yes, I also posted on trumpetherald, and several folks have reached out to assist.  No one has suggested a fabrication yet, but I would be interested if possible.  Thanks!
