  1. Hi Everyone,

    I am looking for someone to urgentley repair a Shilke Sop.
    The Water Key unit on it has come off tonight whilst at a concert i need to get it fixed in time for a rehearsal on Weds. Or ideally have some amando keys fitted.
    I live in the Nottinghamshire area but i can get to most places.

    Can anyone help.

    Alan Carlin is a qualified instrument repairer. He lives in Chilwell, Notts.
    Google ALAN CARLIN PIANO TUNING & REPAIRS. A large part of his business is brass repair and I'm sure he could do a quick turn round job for you.
