Frank Holton Collegiate C broken key
« on: April 01, 2019, 01:24:09 PM »
Hellow fellows. I'm reviving an old F. Holton Eb Collegiate Clarinet. If has the C# in two pieces and it is very difficult to solder having the right angle. Where may I get this part?. Any help will be deeply appreciated. Thank you for reading and helping me.

Its going to be nearly impossible to find s perfectly fitting replacement key for that clarinet. Youd have to get a donor instrument of the same make and model.

Even if you could find a replacement C# key the chances of t actually fitting are very slim.

You might have to just try your best with a solder and see if it works
