I had a tragic accident this morning and bent a tuba valve. Anyone have any idea how to get a replacement valve for a king 4 valve tuba? OR the cost of one.
Did you bend the entire valve, or just the stem? Perhaps it can be repaired?
actually it is the very bottom of the valve. Like where the spring would push.
Oh, I see. You might check with your local repair shop and see if they can repair it. They should at least be able to get the valve back into round so it will go back into the casing. If not, they may be able to tell you how to go about getting a new one. I don’t know of any place to do that myself.
The valve should be able to be possibly straightened depending on the skills and equipment of your local repair service. If not a similar or identical valve can be ordered from King themselves by your local repair shop. I just recently had to replace a Yamaha euphonium second valve, that is no longer in production, as a student shoved a screw driver into the bottom of the valve. Essentially damaging the whole system and creating an immovable piston. All problems should be able to be answered by a local repair person, or a king representative though. Best of luck.
