In the 30 years I’ve been repairing instruments I’ve always wondered if the top of a rotor can actually snap off. I’ve been rather surprised that I haven’t seen it before today. This particular instrument is an off-brand and very unlikely to be able to find a replacement part or be high enough quality to bother. However I will be reaching out to my colleagues around the country to find out if there is a cost-effective way to solve a problem like this. Meanwhile my customer has a loaner horn and I’ve sent them a few listings online for used horns of higher quality that will have staying power.
