View Full Version : Valves on trumpet

02-02-2008, 05:14 PM
The repair shop said that they are going to send my trumpet off and have a nickel plating job done to replace the monel metal on my Bach Strad. Will this decrease the value of my trumpet? They said this repair will last for years to come. Has anyone had this done to know if the nickel actually works better than the monel metal?
